Now you're talking, it brings back memories of my novice rig, a Johnson
Valiant Viking, the blue glow of the 866 and the thump from the cluster
of 6146's. I could feel it on the bench. Why did I get rid of that and
my HQ-170??
Real tubes in real radios. I guess that's why the amp I am working on is
a 4-1000A , but it wont have the variable blue glow.
