Some transverters suffer from false overload detection due to noise on
the DC circuit to the microprocessor.
The cure I have found effective is to remove the front panel metalwork
and solder a 0.1 uF capacitor between the collector and emitter of Q7.
If you do not have the two 0.1 uF capacitors on the 5 volt regulator and
the 10 uF electrolytic across the 5 volt line (between pins 1 and 2 of
the main board P1) they should be added as well.
