16 Minutes is normal. First FTS tubes do not leak as much as the old HP  
tubes. Second the seller most likely did run a test which means the tube was  
pumped down. 
Unless there is software that tells beam current the only way I know to get 
 some idea of health of tube is as I mentioned before measure the beam 
current. I  have probably done it at least a hundred times, made a connector

Well,  it's alive, and I even have 10MHz coming from it.  It took about 16  
minutes to go to lock.  Is that good, or doesn't matter?  Now I've  got to 
put together a serial cable and see if I can talk to it and find out  how it 
thinks it's doing.  But, this is  good!


Hope  you enjoy the wall decorations.  =)
