I'm looking for one good UV-200 BBT (one amp) detector tube for a radio in my collection.

Hi Andrew, you must have been posting right as I was changing my post to another tube type. :D

Cross your fingers regarding what you may receive. If they have been previously tested as 01-A's, they aren't likely to function correctly. Others, including me, have tested 00-A's incorrectly in the past. I have several 00-A's and I am not aware of a way to separate those I tested incorrectly in my early days of collecting from those acquired after I was made aware of the danger of testing them with 01-A higher B+ settings. I wouldn't be able to offer any that I could certify as tested with 00-A data. When I will be installing them in my battery sets I will be cycling through my supply to see which ones appear to be operating correctly. I am not aware of any way to determine which I may have spoiled back in the 70's. If someone here has a reliable method to determine 00-A's that are not damaged from incorrect testing procedure, that could be helpful.

I'm looking for 00's not 00A's, just to be clear.
