Chris, almost any High voltage rectifier from a T.V. will exceed you
(tube or solid state)! Some numbers for you are; 1AD2, 1B3GT, 1G3GT,
all have the following specs - 26KV -at-50 ma. (pulsed) 33KV -at-33 ma R.F.
Look in any old RCA Recieving tube manual and you will see dozens of
tubes that exceed your specs and almost all of those tubes can be had for
less than a dollar at a surplus electronics store.
