Who's the other guy in the photo, Brian?

Good to hear you on the air this morning.  By the 2nd round, your signal 
had started to fall off.  I -had- ran the variac up on the plate supply, 
to produce around 200w of carrier output, but even if there was full 
potential, the transformer for the final is only a BC-610 plate 
transformer, at 2500v.  A Choke input power supply, with 2 LC stages, is 
only gonna make around 2350 to 2400vDC.   The tank circuit in my rig has 
a pair of 250TH's in push-pull, link coupled, in a balanced circuit.  If 
I pulled one tube, then the remaining tube would handle all the current, 
and it would still be as if I was running a pair.  So, not really a 
'gain' in having a pair, in such a circuit.  Parallel would be a 
different story.
