Re: {Collins} Question on 516-F2...why would there be a 200 RX in series with L2

Hi Lee:

I saw a reply that it might be because solid state rectifiers were used. However, I am guessing that 150 ma is being drawn which means that 30 volts would drop across the resistor. Even with vacuum tubes, the low voltage supply is "hot". Measure the voltage at the KWM-2 under receive and see how the voltage compares to spec.

Adjust accordingly.

Hi everyone....
Getting into my spare 516-F2, that I have never used here. Going to replace some CAPS as well as the old broken HV socket with a ceramic one.

In the process of replacing the HV tube socket and looking around.....I find a 200 ohm 10 watt RX in series with the LV choke L2. It is between tube V2 pin 2 and the L2 8H choke.
Why would you think someone would put it there??
Thanks very much.
