Straightforward  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Haven't looked at or thought about vacuum tube theory since I took the Advanced in 1972 (when they had only two questions about transistors). Needed this for their little transmitter so ordered it and built it first. As I remarked above, "straightforward". After working with 3" boards for most of my QRP projects, this was, well, different. Not difficult. Since it's high voltage checked everything 3 times before hitting the switch and got 198 V first thing. Excellent. Can use it with other projects. Recommended.
