Skip, also consider including the Amp Supply LA-1000 and the Ameritron
AL-84 in your conversion writeup. All three amps are virtual clones and
it may improve your chances of an article acceptance.
Tnx for info on the EL-509. Who is carrying them? Might keep a lot of
CBers happy also!

>Hello to all,
>In the course of helping a past request for the maual and circuit

>One of my past posts mentioned the lack of replacement sweep tubes at

>that I at one time set about to author an article for QST with the

>I have received renewed requests for the "update" information I once

>"retrofit" quite nicely and have two "virgin" GLA-1000B amplifiers in
>I will once again start the "update mods" and tube retrofit using one

>would like to throw out a request to have anyone with practical
>thoughts/ideas for the Dentron GLA-1000x circuit to please offer their
>opinions and ideas.
>As I update different sections of the amplifier, I'll be posting the
>various short problems related and would hope to have your thoughts.
>These would include:
>Better efficiency above 21MHz
>Installation of a standby mode, current cuttoff/reduction circuit.
>Reducing the VHF gain/ parasitic reduction, design of suppressor
>Conversion from the original 6JE6/6LQ6 to the Svetlana EL-509
>Any other related issues.
>I have copies avail of the GLA-1000 circuit and the EL-509 information
>is on the Svetlana web page. I'll try and keep this short and simple.
>I would hope to minimize any errors before the submission of the
>article to the ARRL. Thanks to those who have already offered to help
