Re: {Collins} 32S-3 CW Chirp

Try turning down the CW calibrate control.  In some 32S-3 series transmitters turning this control more than about 12 o'clock produces a chirp.  You can run it up if necessary to "spot" a signal but then run it back down.  

I got an E-Mail one evening about such a problem when I was using my 32S-3 on 40 meter CW.  I noticed that I had run the CW CAL control way up.  So, I ran the control back below mid-point and the keying problems went away.

I have a RE 32S-3 in what appears to be excellent condition, but it has a CW chirp.  The chirp appears at the beginning of a character.  This is an on-air chirp, not something I'm hearing in the monitor, but I must say the monitor tone also sounds chirpy or unstable (seems too high pitched and the audio frequency will sometimes change frequency). This is not a 32S-1 however so I assume they are separate problems.  I would characterize the on-air chirp as a mild.  Not severe but noticeable.  Has anyone had and solved a similar problems?
