Here is the correct link to the tube source in Cashmere.  They have the tube you are looking for at $25.00 each.  Wow.

Link to web page  http://www.vacuumtubes.biz/tubes-1  The link to the tube inventory is on this page.

List of available tubes with pricing from the above link.  https://static1.squarespace.com/static/57ae25c75016e1690c41b053/t/5e042d733c0d2457768bd10f/1577332114147/tubes.pdf

Re: Coax Purchase

Is there any of the DX Engineering RG8X left from that last buy.  I could use 75 feet.  If not is there enough of us that need coax to make a larger buy to get a discount?

Coax Purchase

Rowland
 

My son is looking for some LMR400 if anyone has some.  I believe he needs about 50'.  Let him know the price or if others need some we can do bulk purchase


Thanks,

Rowland

Shawn - Im in no rush at all... thanks!
Gerard - your dad should definitely charge more - LOL! 

Ryan - I had a suspicion you were an audiophile - I just got my first phono tube pre-amp and am planning my first tube role. I would love to pick your brain offline about your experience/setup.

Yep, that’s what my dad predominately does,Now that he is mostly retired. He restores old radios for vintage radio clubs back east. I’m gonna have to let him know he probably isn’t charging enough $$😉

I’ll give him another call. I guess within his circle that’s what he gets them for. He said he’s got a bunch of good used ones.

But like I said he’s in jersey so he has to ship them to me. I’ll let you know.

A buddy of mine recently realized he's got a set of preamp NOS tubes, slightly used, made in Holland that go for over $200 now. It's kind of crazy. But, <sigh>, even I took the plunge this year. I bought some audio amps that have a tube based input stage. I've rolled some 6BZ7/ECC88 tubes and can hear a difference so I've swallowed the kool-aid and am enjoying the hobby. I have only bought 1 tube though and that was from Tube Depot. Easy and fast shipping no issues I recommend. A friend of mine lives near this shop and says its run by people who know what they are doing with a large selection https://www.vivatubes.com Good luck.

Called my dad and he said that is a very common type of tube, and that $34.95 price tag on the link Rowland shared was super crazy over priced. Good used ones can be found for .50 cents . But if someone can’t find that AU for under $35 let me know and he said he’ll dig some out and mail them to me. He’s in New Jersey, so it won’t happen overnight.

Hey Folks,

At the online SnoVARC meeting last week we discussed the possibility of running a Technician level online class.  We have 20 students who jumped at the chance.

Next step is to find folks like you to be mentors.  Then on some scheduled basis, mentors will be available to answer questions, provide insight, and understanding.  Each student will be asked to sign up and use hamtestonline.com.

I need mentors who will help with this.  Please let me know if you are interested, and how you could help.

Tests will be administered after the quarantine.
