Call it what you like, but my DRSSTC operates pretty much the same way. I 
am no longer looking for
notches, and I drive it at the lower pole for most power. I think the 
secondary feedback gives the
higher pole though. Still pretty close.

I think it is probably not your filter caps. You mentioned to me that you 
were using 40 feet of
extension cords, so it's probably not able to recharge the caps fast 
enough. You're just dragging
the line down
