After producing the Warrior and the GSB-201, finding that even though  
the RCA Tube Manual's "neutralization" circuit deceased feedback at  
HF, due to phase shifting as freq shifted, they came to realize that  
it had the opposite effect at VHF, and neither Heath nor Gonset  
produced another "neutralized" g-g amp.
