The paragraph below shows why you color the data you get, and 
misrepresent it. You have an agenda, to prove everyone who is 
successful is a crook.

You don't need to "inspect" the tubes, you already know what your 
conclusion will be. 

When Eimac disagreed with you, you blamed them for covering up 
the truth.

The only thing that prevents you from being widely accepted by 
engineers, is they understand your theories and analysis are all 
bologna. You can dupe the poor Ham who doesn't quite follow all 
the theory, but you can't fool the people who understand physics or 
circuit theory...especially those with test equipment.
