*: Mutual conductance measured
at Va=180V, RL=3.3k ohms, Rk=68 ohms, in a mutual conductance bridge max
frequency 1kHz, max input signal to grid 100mV RMS.
Power gain and bandwidth may
be adjusted by altering the coupling between the anode line and the output
loop. Under the typical conditions shown above the relationship between
power gain and bandwidth at 900MHz is:
