Hi Mark,
Thanks for the responce. One of my orginal concerns was the amount of Hg., as you said, and I recall when these were first introduced to the market using only one Hg. trode, that may have been the case, but now they are used in pairs. So, will that qualify as enough Hg. for even a tube of longer length? Who knows, I guess we have to take the word of the mfg. that there's the correct amount. I also remember this was brought up back in the INA days, as to quanity of Hg., and was determined the "5mil slug" was a very excessive amount.As for cost, that's not a concern. I'm always open to try a new product if it seems to be viable, but this may be a whole different ball game. I'd love to here what the Troll has to say.............Hiya GN.
Best regards, Bobby
