    Sounds like the transistor is not heating up anymore, so that is good. Next step, if you have weak signal, is to perhaps perform a TX alignment if possible, and see if output power comes up any. I do know that the tube "final amp" stage is prone to problems, so it may be possible that the radio is fine up to the tube section.


    ~Cheers~
