    All normal on shutdown the night before. Next morning a box of rocks and the coolant goes out as fast as it goes in. Down and up in an afternoon. $170 from NAPA. Scraping gasket? I'd rather be bent over a chemical toilet and done with a garden weasel. The gasket was a three beer marathon.

    Today, no runs, no drips , no errors.

    Next crises?

    "I received notification from my product manager, parts are delayed a little bit and are due to RFMW on 6/17/19.

    Order is marked SOR so we can ship the same day parts are received in.



    Apologize as NXP confirmed parts are shipping to us on 6/10- will try to ship sooner if possible.

    This is best date given, their backlog had incorrect ship date which told us parts were expected tomorrow however they updated the system and 6/17 is best date.



    I will advise if any changes or improvements are made."

    (4X) GS-15B cavity, water cooled. Grounded screen, cathode driven, grid not grounded do to transit time between grids at high freqs. I need to make the supplies and add 4 grid meters along with a screen. Has plate current meters already. Should make 1200-1800 watts On 23CM (not PEP) looks like Iron mans heart :)
