How do I test an FM1000 tube? I have a Triplett model 3444 tube tester and a Hickok model 6000A and can't find test data for either tester for the FM1000 tube. It is used in a Philco model 48-482 radio.

Per the Philco Repair Bench, test info for the Eico tester :
FM1000 11 6.3 1 2, 5 1, 3, 7 FM1000

Approximate 'modern' equivalent:

Based on the theory of operation as described in Kiver, the 6BN6 gated-beam discriminator.

I think the Triplett you mention may be about the same as the Eico. That can be researched on the net though to be certain.
