R-F Power Amplifier, Oscillator, Class 6 Modulator
RCA-800 is a three-electrode transmitting tube of the thoriated-tungsten filament type designed for use as a radio-frequency amplifier or oscillator, particularly at the higher radio frequencies. It may be operated at maximum ratings at frequencies as high as 60 megacycles. The maximum plate dissipation for class B and class C telegraph services is 35 watts. The grid and plate leads of the 800 are brought out through separate seals at the top of the bulb to insure high insulation and low interelectrode capacitances.
