My main concern Don is that giving out a calculated carrier level for a set 
of tubes to a guy who does not have a scope and audio generator is not going 
to give the amateur band another clean signal.  As I mentioned in a previous 
email, I have been unable to obtain the efficiencies you mention and would 
like to hear from someone who can measure everything with test equipment and 
tell me about it.

>>Don says:
>>"So you could run maximum 1500 watts DC input to those tubes, with 500 
>>watts carrier output, and 1000 watts dissipated by the tubes"
>>*******I need a little help with the math here Don.  You are suggesting 
>>that with a class B linear in AM mode, one can get 2000 watts PEP with 
>>1500 watts input ?
