Default GU-19-1 Russian tube

I recently got two of these tubes as a present.
I would like to know what type of socket is needed.
An extensive search on the Internet did not yield any result.

Thanks in advance.

Your tubes require a B8S type socket + two anode caps (no idea what type).

More data can be found here:

ARCOR

And a datasheet:

DOUBLE TRANSMITTING TETRODE

Cheers,

I notice that the G2 dissapation max (60w) is greater than an anode max (40w).
From what I gather, RF tetrodes will generally accept higher than specified G2 voltage, providing the anode volts are kept down.
So, could this be a good contender for triode connection?
Just conjecture.
I think this is an experimenters tube.

Edit:
He he, just noticed the common G2 between sections. That'll spoil it.
Edit2:
Which is why the dissapation is higher

Default WHAT'S IN A NAME.

Hi,

Glad I could help.

From looking at your name I assume you live in Belgium or France so if you don't mind you have a good chance of finding what you need here:

HALFIN INTL

You can send Mr.Michel Wiams an e-mail or call him directly at this # 02.209.29.01.

Hope it helps,

Cheers,

Yes, it helps.

I think the ARCOR site is a treasure.

I will call Mr. Wiams of Halfin and see if he can
supply me with two of these B8S's

Thanks again.

more data (hope you can read russian )

the dissipation et al reminds me of, say.. 829b.
the graphs are different though...

Speaking of 829b, I'm working on a whole bottle triode strapped. Will be intresting to see/hear
