I have the HW-16 that I bought when I was a teenager. Many years ago I got a little postcard from Fox Charlie Charlie letting me know I was putting out a harmonic when I was running the rig on 15 meters. The card is long gone, thus I have no idea of the nature of the emission. What is worse, however, is that the plastic twiddle stick for adjusting Heath Kit coils is also long gone.
I suspect that merely going through the adjustment in the manual would cure the problem. Is there an adjustment tool available to replace the Heath Kit device? Yes, I probably could make my way to a Spectrum Analyzer, but the harder part is coming across the required tool!! WB5EMX

Actually, if anybody has one of those HW-16 twiddle sticks and can measure the size across the flat with a caliper, that would be appreciated.

I bought a used one off of eBay. Mine measures 0.100 inches across the flats.
