The CV2466 is the UK Government designation for the commercial QQV02-6 designed by Mullard. It is the smallest of the double beam tetrodes in the series. It is used in frequency multipliers and driver stages, but for small output powers can be used alone as a final power amplifier.
In the European pattern of VHF double tetrodes a common cathode is located centrally. The separate anodes are to the left and right side of the envelope. The grid that is seen is the common screen grid. The beam forming plates are little more than a rectangular aperture in a flat sheet. The screen grid is formed from thin wire fitted into notched supports in the conventional way. The control grids are mounted on frames to hold the exceedingly fine wire in place.
The thin glass tube envelope is 19 mm in diameter, and excluding the B9A base pins, is 57 mm tall.
