QRO GU-84B TETRODE

PLEASE LET IT LOAD TO VIEW ALL THE PICS.


4CX2500A/GU-84B

SVETLANA POWER TRANSMITTING TETRODE

The GU-84B is a ceramic-metal forced-air cooled tetrode intended for use in power amplifiers with distributed amplification and for SSB-signal amplification with output power up to 2.5 kW at frequencies up to 75 MHz as well as for power amplification at frequencies up to 250 MHz with output power up to 2.2 kW in radiotechnical equipment. The Svetlana 4CX2500/GU-84B is manufactured in the Svetlana factory in St. Petersburg, Russia.
GU-84b is the military version of the Svetlana tetrodes.Typical use would be transmitters "PLAMYA" ("FLAME"-eng.),used on submarines.In emergency mode GU-84B can work without cooling aproximately 20-30 minutes.Many amateur radio stations see 4 KW in SSB and CW modes. They use GU-84B in long-lasting contests.
