Looks like if you can get a filament voltage of 36 volts in there somehow, you
can use the 36V version 36KD6 and save $20 per tube.

Some do that with one of the FT-101 series of transceivers, I believe, only it's
a 22 or 24 volt tube replacing a 6 or 12 volt one. Big savings on tubes, but you
need another filament transformer to provide the odd voltage.
