Oddly enough Sven and Paul I was having a word to Paul Gosciny (ZL4AAG) and he had an old RCA tube tester.
I sucked him dry, as to his experience in Aus/NZ valves, he looked at the valves and said, there is a EC81, a ECL89, and others, he then proceeded to plug them all in.
He then turned on the set and instead of the usual explosion, there was the warm-up period and.....
We had the National Radio Programme running here, I was most delighted.
He told me to re-align the set, (which I have since done), It sounded terrible, through the ripped speaker.(That I fixed with Supa-glue, being single, I can't justify having nail polish, these days)
But I will still get some pics for you guys, and put them in this post, a bit later
But thanks for all your help guys, it hasn't gone un-noticed!.
