|Re-Tubing Galaxy V||K9BW||2 weeks, 4 days ago|
|Yes, tubes get gassy if the filament hasn't been turned on for a long time. Sometimes, the filament will open when a gassy tube is first turned on at full filament voltage. I use a variac to bring up the filaments to about 50 volts and then i let them cook there for a few days, before applying full voltage. I've had totally lifeless radios that have come back to work very well after a long sleep
Some filaments are hard to see. To be sure, check the continuity on the pins. Otherwise, let the tubes cook a few days.

|How do I tell QST editors an article is really bad!||WA6SAZ||on 18/3/14|
|The ARRL Lab checks the Forums a few times a day. We also encourage our members to help other members with their questions.
The article was published since the majority of Amateurs use windows. It was not written for financial gain, but to assist our readers. With that said, you are very welcome to suggest an article that explains how easy Linux is and how A Radio Amateur can use it..You may even be asked to write it.
