Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The 805 is an HF transmitting triode rated for use up to 30 MHz.
The operating conditions are for Class C service. The control grid current is up to 40 mA.
The anode is milled (expensively) from a graphite block. One advantage is that this can be baked at a very high temperature during manufacture in order to expel contaminants and occluded gases. We believe it to be a direct ancestor of the 813 (also TT10).
The short stub pins may have been designed to fit into a bayonet fitting with spring clips to make contact with the pins.
The wide glass tube envelope is 55 mm in diameter and excluding base pins it is 194 mm tall.
