Forgot to mention, it is probably a grounded-grid design (don't see any
input tuning).  Underneath, there should be two long ferrite =
transformers
connected between the filament transformer and the filaments of the =
813's.
If there are, the circuit is a grounded grid linear amplifier.  You =
should
be able to find circuits for the amp in the 1960's ARRL handbooks or the
Editor and Engineer's handbooks.

Yup, I headed to the local Radio store to have my Yeasu 2 meter rig =
looked
at (no TX). I found it it is a dead-duck, probably the processor, it =
will
make a nice paperweight...

ANYWAY...

I'm talking with the owner about the fact I was looking for an amp, =
prefer
tubes, mainly for use on 75M and maybe 10M... Around 600-700 watts...

He thinks a bit and then rotates to his right and points up on the top
shelf...

"It was left here for a repair about 1.5 years ago, I got it repaired, =
the
guy never picked it up... It is set-up for 75M and 40M.. Pair of =
813's...
Everything checks good on it, it=92s a nice amp..

You can get it off my damn shelf for $75..."

I couldn't reach for my wallet fast enough...

Now the fun part begins... Can anyone ID it, or maybe point to a =
handbook
that is may have come out of so I can get a schematic??

Here It Is:

And Even though I have not fired it up yet, I did light off the =
filaments...
I think EVERY piece of tube gear should have a window...

So, can anyone help me ID my score?!?!?
