This CV2797 carries the Mullard name and the later Mullard logo demonstrating the long service life of these VHF power amplifier valves. This valve has gold plated base and top pins. Within the envelope are two beam tetrodes with a maximum anode dissipation of 40W. The CV specification describes the valve as a robust version of the QQV06-40.
Following the European pattern, a central flat cathode is surrounded by a split control grid (one half per valve), a common screen grid is wound next. The the tops of the beam forming plates can be seen. The anodes are finned for good heat dissipation and clearly separated from the central structures.
The european design of internal capacitors for neutralisation is incorporated and these can be seen as the two wire L shaped pieces connected to the two control grid supports.. Such neutralisation prevented parasitic oscillations during operation in a well designed layout.
The wide glass tube envelope is 44 mm in diameter and, excluding the B7A base pins, is 89 mm tall.
