AL-811H up date:
I removed the top cover and found one tube was not lit.
Removed all tubes and tested on a TV-7D/U.
Found one tube was open.
One has a micromhos of 850 that is low.
Two tubes have a micromhos of 1,300 -ok-
Any one have two Svetlana 811A's pulls around this micromhos value?
I have only had single tube amp's in the past, Will one bad tube on a
cause a SWR problem?
Any thing else I am missing?
Thanks de John KØCQW
