the Kenrich amps all use 20lf6. they actually were designed for 27lf6. The heater voltage on the runs 27 to 29 volts. the tubes run really hot. Not a problem anyways because both tubes are cheap a plentiful.

Looking at A Sommerkamp and a Ham International Radio out of Europe. They run on 220.. thats not a problem got 220 right here but they run 50hz where we run 60 hz. Think thats an issue? Never have run onto it before nor ever even considered it.
