The Tuneon is a neon tuning indicator. These neon column indicators pre-date the CRT type of 'magic-eye' indicator.
Within the thin glass tube is a wire rod and a pair of circular electrodes. To function as a tuning indicator it produced a column of glowing plasma that changed length by virtue of a changing control potential.

The working electrode is a simple rod within the tube.
The thin glass tube envelope is 13 mm in diameter and, excluding the base pins, is 103 mm tall.
