to compensate the level tolerances of the noise transistor. Until then the
noise transistors were selected to obtain at least 5Vpp level. If the level
is only 2Vpp probably the transistor may have changed it's noise behaviour
over the time (and your message implies that the module had earlier a higher
level). I see two solutions: increase the amplification of the internal
amplifier by decreasing the value of R3 or replace the noise transistor Q1.
Contact me directly for the position of R3 (hardware@...). There are
four different pcb versions of the A-118 with different positions of R3.
