    Picked up one of these today at a hamfest. Very nice cosmetically inside & out. Seller had it labeled "Power Supply 0V, parts only, make offer. Brought it back to life by replacing the line fuse and a shorted transistor, then fixed a loss of heater voltage by repairing a broken trace.
    It has no tubes. I found a 12BY7 in my stash but being a Heathkit guy I only have 6146A's, not the 6146B's called out in the manual. Is this rig one of the finicky ones or will the A's work?

    Thanks, Terry W8TMT
