Vacuum Tube - 0Z4-A, Rectifier, Full Wave, Gas
The 0Z4A is a gas-filled, double diode employing an ionic-heated cathode. Its principal application is as a full-wave power rectifier in equipment with vibrator type power supplies.
Vacuum Tube - 12V6GT, Tetrode, Beam Power
Beam pentode designed primarily for use in the audio output stage of a-c and storage-battery-operated equipment. It is capable of supplying high power output with high sensitivity, high efficiency, and low third and higher-order harmonic distortion.
Vacuum Tube - 1LN5, Pentode (VT179)
Sharp-cutoff pentode designed for use as a radio-frequency, intermediate frequency, or audio-frequency amplifier in battery operated receivers.
Vacuum Tube - 1N5GT / 1P5GT, Pentode, Sharp Cut-Off, RF
Filamentary type sharp cut-off pentode voltage amplifier. It is designed for service in low-drain battery-operated receivers as an RF, IF, or AF amplifier.
Vacuum Tube - 50A5, Tetrode, Beam Power
Beam power amplifier designed primarily for use in the output stage of a-c/d-c receivers. The 50A5 features high power sensitivity and high efficiency when operated at relatively low plate and screen voltages.
Vacuum Tube - 6A8GT, Pentagrid Converter
Pentagrid converter designed for service as a combined oscillator and mixer in AC, storage battery, and AC-DC operated receivers

Vacuum Tube - 7G7 / 1232, Pentode
Sharp cut-off pentode voltage amplifier designed for use in television or other high-frequency amplifiers where the low impedance circuits required result in low gain which may be partially compensated for by use of a high transconductance tube.
Vacuum Tube - 5726 / 6AL5W, Dual Diode
Twin diode miniature type intended for applications where dependable performance under shock and vibration is paramount. The 5726 is a "premium" version of the 6AL5W
Vacuum Tube - 2A3, JJ Electronics
The JJ Electronic 2A3 features a robust construction in a beautiful thick glass envelope. The JJ 2A3 offers 40 Watts of plate dissipation which far surpasses the headroom of other 2A3 tubes by 25 Watts. The single plate build and increased ratings give this tube the highest reliability. The JJ 2A3 has amazing detail and clarity with excellent separation.
