Agreed, Leigh. However, in my answer to this, I pointed out that the Amateur Radio Community also has an interest in tube technology, and that the tubes you mentioned from off-sources are often of poor quality. I think some of the Western Electric interest is likely related to geo-political concerns. Off=shore supplies could dry up overnight. Perhaps we can help Western Electric understand better the markets that exist.

Reconstituting the tooling, materials, and knowhow to produce these Tx tubes to the 
former Eimac quality standard would be an overreaching bridge too far….

In case someone hasn't seen this. Western Electric is looking to get back into 
the domestic tube market, and they are looking into what tubes to produce. You 
can see more and make suggestions here:
