    I’m trying to figure out why my AL-80A (just acquired) won’t tune.  In consultation with the tech person at Ameritron it seems that it MIGHT be a problem with the 3-500zx.  I’m looking for either someone who has a tube tester that can test the tube OR someone who has a spare 3-500zx that I can try in the amp.  Here’s my guarantee:  If your spare 3-500zx fixes my problem I’ll either return it to you or buy you a new one of your choice.  If your spare 3-500 is damaged I’ll buy you a new one of your choice.  I just don’t want to buy a new tube without knowing whether it’s the problem.

    I have a tube tester that may handle 3500z tubes.

    I have a tube tester and spare 3-500Z tube.  Please contact me if you still need help.  I can be reached via my ARRL email address.

    I suppose it would be easier to contact me if I provided my email address.  <mycall>@arrl.net
