"A type 55 tube with a wire from one diode plate pin to the grid cap will suffice.  This was Scott's recommendation after the Wunderlich tube was no longer available. Norman"

There were lots of static crashes and pops in the sound from the front end. Unplugging the IF strip brought complete silence, so the noise was definitely coming from the front end.R51 which feeds B+ to the RF amplifier was burned.
