The Weber “Copper Cap” diode replacement for the 6X5GT arrived today. Works fine, and I notice the dial lights are a little brighter now that the 6-volt winding on the transformer is less loaded.
I tested the 6X5 for cathode-to-heater leakage and emission, and it passed with flying colors. Even so, I’m glad I spent the money on the diode.
Attached are a couple blurry shots of the diode and tube and the back of the radio with Copper Cap installed.
