I hooked up my computer and found a larger resolution, not the original and not wallpaper size, it still requires a little tinkering to get it to look like the image I posted earlier, I'll post it when I get the chance. In any case, if it goes up, you have my permission to use it freely

^ Very nice. Which 6F8G are you using in your WA6?

Right now I've got mis-matched 6F8G valves in there -- ordered 2 pair from someone and ended up with 4 different ones.  The one closest is a Tung Sol made for the US Army Signal Corps (with the round plates and horseshoe getters) -- the one further away is an RCA that appears to be several years older and wildly different in construction.  Out of the four these were the best sounding together.
 
...if anyone knows where I can find a second US.Army-made Tung-Sol 6F8G I'm all ears...

How is the 6F8G a replacement for the 6DE7?
 
I understand that they are both dual triodes. after that nothing about them is similar. at all. Ooh, the heaters in both tubes work on 6.3v they have 2 similarities.

^ I'll check my supply when I get home. I have 2 quads of 1944 Raytheons, and a whole bunch of singles. Well, a bunch--like maybe 4 or 6 I forget. I think the only Army-grade tubes I have are the Raytheons. But I'll report back to you this evening to tell you if I have a match for your Army-grade Tung-Sol or not.
