    So far, I have noticed:

    1. tuning meter is centered when unit is off
    2. when antenna is disconnected and tuner needle is at the left of the dial (or any position where no station is detected), tuning meter rests one bar to the right of center
    3. optimum tuning position for any channel also appears to be when needle is one bar to the right of center
    4. I have not noticed any drift

    Is this a simple meter adjustment, or an alignment issue?

    Well, this thread was almost a year old and Mike at RadioXTuners already aligned it for me last spring.

    I'll keep it forever, so it was worth it.

    Old thread, I know. What a coincedence. My T-2 has less output since yesterday. It turnes out that exactly the the same 2SK68A is broken :idea:

    So the NTE458's did the job? And are still doing the job?

    Hello
    Why using NTE458 when you can use original 2SK68A ?
