The QQV04-20 power VHF double tetrode is the valve that came before the QQV03-20. In this valve we see two independent electrode systems. This is the American pattern. In the later valves in this series from Mullard the European pattern of a single cathode assembly is developed. The twin valves in an envelope approach was harder to keep stable and required external neutralising capacitors.
The ratings presented are per valve with the exception of the heater parameters and the final output power available, which are for the pair operating together.
Seen from the rear, the pressed box anodes are seen.
The wide glass tube envelope is 48 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins, is 100 mm tall.
