    Hi, guys,



    I've been working on an old Cadet 150B amp, and tried firing it up today. I get nothing out of it. I put a 4" fan in it to try to keep the tubes cool. I plugged it in, and nothing. The relay is clicking, and the tubes are glowing orange, but this is my first tube amp that I have gotten close to running, and I was wondering if I'm doing something wrong? I turn the tune and load knobs, but nothing is happening that I can tell. I look at my watt meter, but there's no movement. Any ideas? Lew

    Just from the information you have given, you aren't getting any power output because there's no power input. What radio are you using and how much power output doe it have?
