Hi Peter,

Yes, that's an interesting tube line up. I'm kinda leaning that way. That's 
a great way to provide voltage for both the final's screen and driver's 
plates. One regulated supply - I like it. Richard Measure's  FET reg supply 
design wud work well there.  Looks like they are drawing some grid current 
on the final. I wonder what the final IMD figure is on that lash up?

Colin suggested the 6550 tube as a  low level driver. It's got nice, clean 
curves and they are avavilable cheap on the web.  So I can eliminate the 
6146 unless I do the series 4CX-350's.

Gary / K4FMX, I don't have access to the old 1967 QST issues, but maybe 
there is a accessible spot on the web?
