WW2 Admiralty Transmitting Triode Valve/Thermionic Tube CV1222/NT39/AT75
This is a little piece of Radio Communication history in the form of a British Admiralty Air Cooled WW2 Admiralty Transmitting Triode. Also known as Valve/Thermionic Tube CV1222/NT39/AT75. They were manufactured from the 1920s to the 1940s.
It has a large 4-pin bayonet base and external anode with integral finned radiator. The valve was suitable as an amplifier or oscillator down to 10 metres at full rating and down to 4 metres at reduced HT voltage. Marconi were thought to have used this type of valve in their transmitters.
A nice looking gadget for display in the vintage office, the filament is actually showing continuity; a sign that the valve is probably working!
Diameter Base: 4.8cm
The triode is very faintly stencilled with:
and the air ministry arrow
