The 3CX3000A7 high-mu forced air cooled power
triode provides relatively high power output as
an amplifier, oscillator, or modulator at low plate
voltages. The tube has a low inductance cylindrical filament tank circuit for VHF operation. Operation with zero grid bias in many applications offers
circuit simplicity by eliminating the bias supply.
Grounded-grid operation is attractive since a
power gain of over twenty times can be obtained.
