THE INFAMOUS 807

807 Beer Beam Power Tube








Application

Heater-cathode type used as af power amplifier and modulator and as rf power amplifier and oscillator. May be used with full input up to 60 MHz. For class C telegraphy operation at 80 MHz, plate voltage and input should be reduced to 80 % of maximum ratings; at 125 MHz to 55 %. Class C telegraphy maximum plate dissapation, CCS 25 Watts, ICAS 30 Watts, BINGE 3 pints. Requires substantial quantities of beer and a small 5-contact socket and may be operated in almost any position. Plate shows a rich amber color when tube is operated at maximum CCS, ICAS or BINGE ratings. Exceeding ratings can cause a malt down.
