Hi all, in particular tube experts (yes I am talking the old big metal
glass/ceramic things with heaters)

Anybody know what the max anode voltage rating in a triode spec means?
specifically the GU5B
i.e. does it mean the maximum supply voltage or the maximum peak voltage
that is allowed on the anode.
What may happen if the maximum peak anode voltage is exceeded, assuming the
maximum anode dissipation is not exceeded.
Thanks in advance.

for a bilingual data sheet.

Exceeding the maximum anode voltage may not do much if the vacuum is good, but this tube is rated at 5 kV max below 30 MHz and I would think that would be sufficent for anything you have in mind.
