Drift is easy fix...couple new temp.compensating caps in the right spot and relocate VFO board clean bandswitches good now solid as a rock after warmup.120W on 11M from a pair of 6HF5's and 140-150 minimum on all other bands....awesome transmit audio man..also tweaked AGC for nice easy listenen

Yes I did that cap mod on my Siltronix 1011C, takes about 10 minutes of warm up and then it only drifts a few hz, keep it inline with a frequency counter.
