The CV1944 is a triode hexode frequency changer. The prototype was the 6K8G and the CV1944 is identical.
Top view: the cathode is offset to one side with a grid support behind it. This is the construction of the 6K8.
The screen covers most of the electrodes but the lower parts can be seen. The 6K8 has a diagram of the internal layout. In this image the hexode anode is on the far left and the triode anode is on the far right. The inner grid is two sided and forms the triode control grid and the mixer control grid where the local oscillator injection to the mixer takes place.
The triode anode at the front with the coiled insulated heater easy to see.
The cathode with the double sided grid around it. The grid winding passes flat across the cathode and keeps a constant distance to the flat anode.
The classic envelope is 38 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 97 mm tall.
