One in the final, and a pair in the modulator, is the equivalent of 
running a single 833A in the final, modulated by a pair (ala K5SWK)

Amazing how far a little TLC goes, on these ol' big jugs.

Work calls (again) and I'll be out of town till around the 4th of July, 
but plan on doing some late-night radio (midnight CST and later) during 
the slower summer months, and then hang out under the AC in the 
day-time.  Temps in South Texas are already near the century mark, and 
Summer isn't 'officially' here, for another week.  ~sigh~  Gonna be a 
hot one.

See ya on (if I recall) 3.980, late at night.

Driving your AM Rig without a scope, 
is like driving your car at night, without headlights.
