Tack a 10k resistor to each filament pin, 10nF decoupling between the loose ends then twisted pair out to your DVM. Should filter out the rf and you don't have to worry about shorting the wires together.

I did measure the voltage at the tube pins. I haven't measured it while 
transmitting, because the RF drives my meter crazy. I assume the voltage drops 
a bit. Unfortunately I no longer have my trusty analog voltmeter. I wish I did.

I'll measure the line voltage. But the only thing I can think of that would 
cause that to increase after long transmissions would be if the breaker on the 
line heated up and lost resistance. I have never heard of that!
