Good afternoon,
It's been a quite a while since I've been around. Got a new job at Corning Glass, bought a house in Pennsylvania, wife's kid finally moved out! I actually can play again!
Has anyone played with 8236's? Got a deal on a pair on that dreaded auction site. It appears the 8236 can take quite a bit of plate voltage, though like the sweep tubes, the screen voltage is low. Anybody have any ideas on P2P load with 700v on the plate and 150v on G2?

Thanks,
Ray

I am based out of Corning.
I was laid off from the lawfirm in April of 2012. I got this job in January of this year. But, good things come to those who wait, they are paying me close to 3times what the law-firm was paying me and 2 weeks vacation from the start.
Things ok with you these days? I never did follow up concerning the 6M11. How did you ever make out?

Nice deal! Corning is a great little town and we would have been extremely happy there (it's near my wife's family in Alfred). The job was doing patent analysis, which is less interesting but less stressful than what I'm doing now. Ah, well. Glad you got out of that law firm!

I used the 6M11 in a tone control line stage prototype- worked like a charm.
