Default 809 Triodes

So I have a couple JAN 809 transmitting tubes and I'm just dying to do something with them. Anyone have any ideas? SET?

Although it calls out as an AF Power amp and Modulator, it looks like it is meantstrictly for class B operation. You will need a driver than can source current, either a cathode follower or a little sand to help it along.

looks like an 'opportunity'.

Here is a thread on an amp that might give you some ideas:

SET amp from 1619 driving a 809. Opinion wanted.
