The EBF2 is a delightful double diode triode with the Mullard bright red metalising and our exhibit is unused. The valve is a high impedance variable μ pentode, with two auxiliary diodes all sharing a common cathode. This valve would have been used in radio receivers probably with the triode as an AGC amplifier. This would imply communications receivers as broadcast sets would use a straight triode for the audio voltage amplifier.
The classic envelope is 29 mm in diameter and, excluding the Ct8 base pins, is 85 mm tall.
