your right i apologize if i came off like an ass las im sure i did.I have shockwave to thank for atleast 90 percent of the knowledge i have learned and the rest was from me having to figuring things out on my own but in some shape or form used knowledge i learned from him to get the awnser.
Tetrodes are nice but take forever to make low drive no need for multiple drivers.Triodes are ok also as long as you build them right so you need as little drive as possible and are protected so they dont blowup if you make a mistake with the amount of drive you feed them or if you have it way out of tune.
I my self am
learning somthing new everyday no one knows everything.I am
in the process of building a 160-10 meter box with a 3cx3000a7 with a 20 amp roller inductor.And i am
finding out its not as easy as a mono band box thats fr sure and that i am
limited big when it comes to power output due to the roller inductor.I would have used a 30 amp roller but it was way to big almost 16 inches long and 10 3/4 wide and 10 3/4 tall. So with the voltage i am
going to run and a q of 12 i am
limited to around 1.6 amps of plate current which equals around 1.4 kw
and 4 times that peak.
If i went with a 6000 tube i can increase the plate voltage and then i can get a little more power.I could even leave the 10000 in it and raise the plate voltage to 10kv.I have a bunch of 6000 tubes and 1 10000 tube all good.
Ofcourse i will observe the legal limits this box is being built with over kill inmind since i talk on am
on the ham bands.
