Yogie/KC5MIP had a Temco that used (4) 6L6's in the Modulator stage. I want to say it had a pair of 807's in the final, but I don't remember, exactly.
Ronnie/K5WLT built a modulator for his Knight Kit T-50, just after he
graduated up from being a Johnny Novice, to General. That's an
interesting modulator, in that it uses a pair of 6L6's and was built
from a Popular Elextronics magazine article, from back in the
mid-to-late 50's. One of those 6L6's is apparently slightly
microphonic. He can take the plastic handle of a screwdriver, hit the
metal 6L6 and the tube 'rings' like a bell. Ronnie has had so much fun
with that rig, running a single 807, modulated by a pair of 6L6's... and
has worked all over the country with it.
I, myself, have plugged in 6L6's into the Ranger, and Rager II I had,
back before I got the titanic.
I've got an old audio amp here, that I got from John/W5MEU that runs
either a pair, or 4, in p-p paralell.
6L6's are populare everywhere. And, while the engineers mght have
decided to use either 1614's in the Rangers, or 7027's in the Ranger
II's, I couldn't tell a nickles worth of difference in the rigs that I
had, between those tubes, and the 6L6.
Just my .02c.
Do I get change? ;-)
