Re: {Collins} Fetrons

I purchased a set of Tubesters for my 75S-3 back in about 1982. I had problems with them and took them out. The replacement for the tube in the PTO was one of the problem tubes. I could pass my hand over the top of the radio and hear the frequency change.

I would like to find a Fetron for the 6AU6 or 75433 for my
75S3B and see if the PTO settles down
and save me the Trouble of rebuilding the PTO.

Before I came here I was confused about this subject. Having listened to your lecture I am still confused. But on a higher level.
