I see no problem as long as it is your own voice you are hearing. Other wise 
contact SYFY channel.
   Those are very high plate currents. Especially the no-load one and for 
the output power.
Is that normal operation or your abnormal operation.
  Do you have any ceramic disc capacitors anywhere in the ckt for bypassing?
Sometimes they can speak to you.

Hello all,

i built a yu1aw 2 meter gs-35 amplifier about 8 months ago. been working 
great. just recently i can here my voice coming from the cavity. also the 
tube seems to be glowing a much brighter blue than before. with the lights 
out i can not see any arcing.  the amp is running the following

plate voltage 4100 no load
plate voltage 4600 full load
plate current 1.0a full load
bias -30v
output 1450 on diawa cn801hp

any ideas would be appreciated.
