Now I am really getting confused.
I have contended all along that it takes about 20w drive. Everything
seems to work well including 100% mod when I drive with 20w. Only
problem being that the tubes redden.
As a point of interest, I am using 6L6's in the modulator but assume
they just won't last as long and not effect the amount of modulation.
Is this a good assumption?
