If you want to build an amplifier using a tetrode but don't want to mess around with screen and grid powersupplies this one is for you!
HV and filament voltage required, just as in a grounded grid amplifier. Screen voltage is derived from the input RF and the grid is at DC ground.
Check the circuit description below.
Top of the rack is a small homebrew 4CX350A amp for 144 MHz, below that is my homebrew HF amp described below.
