A new member posted here late last week needing some 5R4s which I have finally dug up.  Unfortunately during the database backup all of his posts plus the PMs we sent back and forth are gone, and I don't remember his call... W8Asomething.

If the gentleman concerned, or someone else remembers who that was would PM me I can get these tubes onward to where they can do some good towards getting someone on the air.

John,

Are those "Sonically Clear" 5R4's?

As sonically clear as any you'll find, Tom  :lol:

Could be W8AMD but I'm not sure... rats, I'll have to wait until he posts here again wondering where his toobs are.

Yup it was me.  I'll pm you my address again to be sure but my addy on qrz should be right.  

I have some rectifier diodes just stuck in the 5r4 socket right now checking out the Globe Scout Deluxe.  It was also missing a plate coupling cap which I replaced and had it tuning and loading last night.  Still has modulation problems like lack of but I'm sure I'll get it worked out.

Feels good to be tinkering again after a long hiatus.

Thanks again.  It is appreciated.

Not a problem.  I'll send ;em out tomorrow.  THere's a pair, tested on a Hickok but you never know what they're gonna do with HV.

I want to know if they're "cyrogenically" treated 5R4's for superior "tessitura"!

Got the tubes today.  I now have the transmitter basically working.  The Modulation is weak so I have to go through the audio/modulator stages.

Now that I have a Sonically Clear 5r4 I'll just rewire with that fancy audio quality oxygen free copper wire.  That should do the trick.

I thank you sir.  You are a gentleman and a scholar.

THat's the AMers way.  I can't begin to count the help I've gotten in terms of parts, etc from fellow AMers.  The tubes are much better off putting an xmitter on the air than sitting in my attic.
