I am a silent observer of this forum and am surprised that these large triodes have application in the audio field. I did a fast search in my comm shop and didn't find any 845 but do have a number of the 211 type. I thought I had some that were in military type boxes that were marked V4C but I found them yet. I always enjoy your comments on this forum.

I use both 845s and 211s in my station, the 845s as audio drivers in two of
my transmitters, and the 211 as rf driver in another. Good spares of each
on hand, NOT for sale. Eat your hearts out, audiophools.
