The CV576 is an 1B26 TR cell designed for the 23-24 GHz band.
With a high intensity transmission pulse the TR cell will conduct and block off the waveguide port to the receiver, thus protecting the receiver front end devices from the transmitter power. Once the transmit RF pulse has decayed the ionisation collapses and the receiver port is open again.
The wide glass tube envelope is 26 mm in diameter and, 84 mm tall. across the copper cylinder is 38 mm.
