Thanks all that replied direct and the reflector . The Acom 2100 is in warranty so before I do anything I'll wait for more instructions from Val at Acom on Monday .

Yes. Do it in your own amp.

Install the tube and run the heater and fan only, for a day or two. Very simple.

Before you do that, if you have a 1kV Megger, you can test the cold tube, between all elements, for leakage. If there is a problem, it will usually show up with that test.

If there is no problem, You should be pretty safe in plugging in the tube, without the conditioning process.
