Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The EBF80 is a variable μ amplifier pentode and a pair of signal diodes in the one envelope. Probably this was designed as the later EBF89 as final IF amplifier and AM detector. The other diode would provide AGC rectification.
This EBF80 wears the Mullard badge and was made in the UK and so is a genuine Mullard valve. Mullard was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Dutch Philips company and our other EBF80 shows the differences in sealing the envelope to the pressed glass foot.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B9A base pins, is 58 mm tall.
