Re: {Collins} Skytec tube replacements

Hi Paul,
I don't know if you can make this generalized statement.  I have them in a 75S-3B and 32S-3 and apart from running cooler I have not seen any performance degradation.  I think many still use them and they command an attractive price even though the real-deal tubes are still plentiful and less expensive.  I would love to hear other's experience with the SkyTec replacements.

Rick, you can learn about them here:

I agree with KW4DH.  You've gotta' really want to try them and odds are you won't keep them very long after the trial.
