Somewhere, sometime I read an application paper on testing high
power tubes in a simple efficient manner. For the life of me, I
can't remember or find it right now/
It has been so long ago, that I would not even speculate on how it
was accomplished. However, I will continue to search, and if I find
it, I will forward the information to you. I am not sure if it is
in the vein you seek, but it might be useful.
