The 3C22 is a transmitting triode capable of 125 W at 1.5GHz. This exhibit is given as a GL-3C22 and our other 3C22 from General Electric is given as GC-3C22. And has a visible copper anode. The anode in this exhibit is bright.
It was used in the AN/APT-5 radar jamming transmitter. Interestingly this was used as the local oscillator in equipment used to discover the 21cm interstellar hydrogen line in 1951.
