Thanks for all the input, gentlemen.  I have made some
headway.  Especially after I discovered the meter face
had a good static buildup!

I got it as close as possible and adjusted the IF gain to
match the modern rig.  It's all relative...

But, if it reads anywhere close to what I consider normal
in the region up to S9 +20, it is haywire above 20 DB and
now CCW RF gain is only +40.

I always considered (and found) Drake transceivers to have 5 DB
between S units  and great accuracy above S9.  I there any
chance the R7 was meant to reflect a different standard?
