Tuning enhancements for tube amplifiers

AL-1500 2B

Having switched to a solid state ham radio amp a year ago I haven't looked back on the days of having to pre-tune up an amplifier, however today on QRZ I saw on a for sale add by K2ZLS where he had Tuning enhancements for tube amplifiers he used some small color stickers (Avery® 5795 Round 1/4" Diameter Color Coding Labels, Assorted Colors) then when you tune up your amp on each band.. place the color corresponding on the band indicator and on the plate and load dials. easy quick tuning. For color blind just mark your red's and green's with a cross or something. Way cool Idea.. wish I would have done this.. stole his idea and blogged it to pass it on!
