I know the sponsor's don't carry tubes so adding a link shouldn't be a problem unless they sell something the sponsor's do as well. If you use the auction site look at the seller's feedback, there are a few I personally shy away from. I purchased a complete set for my Siltronix 1011C from one seller, tested them when they arrived and all were worse than the bad tubes in the radio. What tubes are you looking for?

I would "Google" the tube numbers, several reliable stores will show up, some have decent prices and may buy your old tubes back.

Look at "World Tube Company" in Washington state, they are a "music" store so they won't up the price like an "RF" store will.

Rod, know of any music stores close by check them out, most guitar amplifiers use the same sweep tubes.
