I have a Ameritron AL-811 that has been converted to use 572B tubes. When I got it it would only do 100 watts so I replaced the tubes, let it sit on stand by for a day and then it would do 800 watts for a while. But after a little while it would start dropping off on power so I let it sit on stand by for several days and everytime I checked it it would be doing less power and now it only does about 80 watts. So does it make sense that it could go through tubes just sitting on stand by? And why would it do that? Could it be that the power supply voltage is too high? I think the voltage sits around 1800 volts according to the meter, but I'd have to check to make sure.
