Title: Orienting Two 3C24 tubes (corrected tube type)
Post by: N4LTA on June 26, 2020, 12:19:25 PM
I am starting to build a small 100 watt class am rig using two 3C24 triode tubes. The tube has the plate on top and the grid on the side.

Trying to figure the best way to locate them side by side. I would guess taking the plate parasitic suppressors of the top in one direction, and the grid suppressors at 180 degrees.

Never seen a photo of a rig with these tubes.

Thanks

the 1947 Editors & Engineers handbook shows amps with 35TG and HK-54 tubes, the pics don't photograph well but they show the tubes seated deep in the chassis with, what I figure, less than a quarter of the tube base protruding above it.
