The AV11 is a high voltage half wave rectifier developed in Australia during WWII when supplies of rectifiers became difficult and higher power radar sets were required. The design and manufacture of both sets and valves was completed in Australia. Full details can be found in the attached .PDF file that comes courtesy of the Museum of Victoria.
The maker AWV is the Amalgamated Wireless Valve Company, Sidney, Australia.
