The PC86 is a purpose designed frame-grid triode for use as a UHF oscillator/mixer for Band IV and Band V television reception. Tungsram also made this valve under their own Type designation of 4CM4.
At UHF a coaxial design would normally be used for professional applications, but by connecting the electrodes to several pins the manufacturers achieve the desired result without the complications, and cost, of a disc seal valve and its mounting. Ideal for the less stringent requirements of a domestic appliance.
The anode side view.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and excluding the B9A base pins, is 47 mm long.
