Default Settings for PL509, EZ80 tubes on 539c tester

Hi,

I have some EZ80 and PL509 tubes. What is the correct settings for my Hickok 539C tester? Unfortunately the PL509 settings missing, EZ80 found in my datasheet, but not working. I used for my EZ80 the following settings:

Fil. Selectorts Bias Shunt Press Range
6.3 EV-0703-1 0.0 80 P3 G - Plate No.1
6.3 EV-0703-7 0.0 80 P3 G - Plate No.2

Anyone can help me?
Thank You

A PL509 can be tested as a 40KG6 which is very similar. From the Foreign supplementary data the settings are:

35v EV-1039-2, 27 bias, P4, D range, 2600 min mut cond (plate cap)

Your settings for the EZ80 seem ok, except my book says EV-0107-7 for plate 2. (could be a typo? maybe try it)
