"        Basically the VT-4-C is the same as the 203A, a triode
rated for 50 watts nominal plate dissipation.  Filament is 10 volts
at 3.25 amps, as I recall.  Can look it up later.  These tubes
should work pretty well for a low-power coil, provided they haven't
turned too gassy after all of these years; they are over 50 years
old and could be as much as 60+


	I stand corrected by several people.  The VT-4-C is indeed
the equivalent of the 211.  The amplification factor is 12, instead
of the 25 for the 203A.  Basically interchangeable and will work
just fine as mentioned before.
