Re: Big Daddy Vacuum Tube
Forced air cooling and BIG filament supply is necessary. This is a
popular tube for radio transmitters, so there should be quite a few
examples in the ARRL handbook, particularly from 10-15 years ago (why I buy
and save a handbook about every 10 years)
1000 - 1000W continuous RF power.... more than that pulsed...
Make a dandy CW tesla coil with it.. You'll need a 3 kV at 1 Amp power
supply (or thereabouts) to run it.
