Thanks to Paul, WD7S, my problem has been solved.  Paul kindly analyzed the 
original schematic of the amp and my conversion and determined that a wiring 
error in employing the W4ZT bias board had resulted in creation of a grid 
metering circuit instead of a plate metering circuit.  The negative lead of the 
bias board should have been grounded instead of attaching to B- since the GI7-B 
has an indirectly heated cathode whose pin is common to one side of the 

Bottom line: everything now works as it should.  Now, bring on the 6M DX!  
Thanks again, Paul.
