I have a Atwater Kent 35 radio and the detector tube is a 200A. I am wondering if there is a suitable replacement that can be used? The 200A is a hard to find tube.

The regular 201A was used as a detector in all AK sets.

There's virtually no difference in performance.

With the earlier non-A suffix 200, a bit of a difference might have been found compared with a 201.
