>If you want to do a resistor test, then you connect a
resistor from anode to ground and look into the pi net
output with an antenna analyzer. This is the ONLY test that
tests the tank components for matching.<
If there's enough volts appear across the tube to allow the use of VTVM with
RF probe to measure it when you do this test, then you also get the advantage
of being able to make sure that you haven't got a nasty RF choke resonance
before applying power. This is a very delicate test, and well worthwhile.
Chuck, you might find it worthwhile disconnecting the coupling capacitor from
the tubes, just in case there's a funny somewhere there.....
