I went through the procedure on my HT4-B (Early civilian version of the 
BC-610) a long time ago, but I do not remember how.

What I do remember is that I never had a moments problem on 20M, 40M, 80M or 

Different tubes?  I have tested at least 12 250TH's in that transmitter and 
had no problem with any.

The transmitter runs about 75% efficiency.  Band-change is, of course, 
accomplished with plug-in coils.

However it works, it works.

Fun rig!  Have not used it for a few years, but if I get my tower shunt-fed 
soon, I'll be back on at least 80 and 160 this winter.
