[AMRadio] Keying a Gates BC-1?

Greetings Heavy Metal Enthusiasts,

I'm trying to determine how best to place the
oscillator in standby during periods of receive.  

I have two main concerns.  One is protection of the
833's if plate voltage is applied without drive.  The
second is avoiding excessive cathode-to-filament
voltage in the 807 audio drivers (cathode followers). 
Perhaps both worries are more imagined than real?

Anyway, please share your experiences.  Any advice
will be much appreciated.
