The 5J32 two anode magnetron was produced for the USA Navy. It was designed to operate at between 90 and 450 MHz and could generate 125 Watts of CW output at 450 MHz, but with a DC input of 500 Watts.
The large tubes connect to the anode and the smaller pins are the filament. The anode tubes do not pass through the valve for water cooling.
The filament can be seen as a thick wire running across the valve. The hole in the anodes is circular but here distorted by the shaped glass.
The anodes seen side on.
The wide glass tube envelope is 50 mm in diameter and, tip to tip measures 125 mm.
