     Yes, another Heathkit SG-8 RF generator modification video. But unlike others, this one has some existing modifications that smooth out the waveform along with a regulated B+ supply and a built-in frequency counter for accuracy! A link to the schematic and photos used in the video is here.
I wasn’t clear on where I connected the 4.7K resistor, right across the Band “A” coil. Screen shot here. I also connected the frequency counter to pin 2 of the 12AU7 through a series 560 ohm resistor and a ,47uf capacitor.
