I replaced my kt34a with a T8, some years ago.
It played about the same, but got me 17 and 12m.
No tuning required. under 2:1 across all bands. I MIGHT have suffered

$1k for the steppIR.
The gap is somewhat wider today.
A t6 won't give you the f/b you have with the kt34a. But you won't
have the maintenance
or tuning issues. As someone else observed, the Tennadyne logs are
