The DCC90 is an RF double triode for battery operation and at up to 40 MHz. The data sheet says the design purpose was as a push-pull RF amplifier or oscillator and the rating are for intermittent operation. With two Watts of RF output in the HF section of the spectrum, a short range portable radio is indicated. This suggests professional voice communications.
The filament is centre tapped and the figures given are for both sections operated in parallel.
