I have seen your fine works, but there are so many fl2100's around working just
fine with 572b Tubes. The ones I have are new Chinese brand and perform
flawlessly in a FL2100B amp of my friend.
The FL2100Z version has, compared to the B version, the TC2 cap for
neutralization. When TC2 is removed amp is fully stable, and easy to tune and
full output (500-550 watts on bird powermeter on all bands).
However, with a really bad SWR of above 1:2.5 or even worse. Sure some one did
the same mod and can give me hints and tricks. Perhaps the TC2 has to return
back in the amp with another type of mod? A PROPER guide how to tune the TC2
would also be very welcome. I used the lowest input SWR (= most output, due to
best matching of input ciruit) as guidance during tuning?
