Thanks again for your help.  Yes, I know about the gettering process, RF testing and emission/lifetime tests for those tubes, my question concerns hipot testing and proper protocol.  I've been relying on these linked Eimac documents, but as mentioned, they concern certain big tubes:



For now, I'll continue using the Eimac Application Bulletin 28 as a guide and I need to add some better metering at lower leakage current.  I'll try to report back on what I learn about all of this.  Thanks, 73, Dean

Looking for replacement bulbs for the 100. The VFO and meter lamps. Anyone try LED replacements? The book doesn't say much as far as wattage or anything as far as the orginals go. They look jist like automotive bulbs. Anyway, i would like as bright as i can get. Thanks in advance

I totally forgot:

Big Storms and Power Outages!

Dallas, Texas. huge outage.

some haiku:

The generator, monstrous and able.
A gallon per hour, the machine song.
3 days, my wallet cries.

I mounted the meters and shunts in the RF deck, more because there was space in the RF cabinet.  I also think it better to monitor each module and would prefer one wire pair to feed the deck (DC) rather than 4.  I bypassed all wires going in/out of the RF deck, the fewer the better.

Sorry to hear this. A prayer for you for better health soon.

My good friend Chuck - NA3CW did his 920 up for stellar AM several years back.  Chuck is very competent engineer and spent some time working through the issues to get it sounding fantastic on AM.  His email is good on QRZ.com.

Must have been a weak transistor.
The protection depends upon the application. There isn't much reason for the 0.1 uF except RF decoupling in a high RF environment. A diode should be sufficient.
But the diode makes the relay slow at fall off. If you want a very fast relay, leave the diode away and limit the collector voltage spike with a zener of e.g. 20 - 36 V across the transistor or a transzorb.

Hello members, 

I'm just looking for some info on improving my AM audio with my FT 920 . I do have some gear to use with it but I'm looking for anyone that has worked on one . Thanks for your time .
