I am sorry to say in my humbleest voice the only valve I can identify with is the critter in the middle on the bottom it’s a 2cx/3cx and I suspect the one on the far right is the 811

My guesses

L-R back row: one of the 3-500 variants, 829, QQV06-40A, 6155 AKA 4-125A

The external anode tube in the middle is too small to be a 3CX1500/8877. My guess is it's a 8930 which is a 4CX250B on Steroids (bigger anode cooler).

Hi Augusto

Lovely idea! I claim 3 out of 5 correct, the 829, QQV06/40 (near enough to the QQE06-40) and the 8930. See earlier message :-) I didn't get the RS1026 or the T130-1. I've never come across those.

Now scratching my head about the ceramic tubes. Biggest tube in the shack is a 8877 on 2m but that's chicken feed compared to these :-)

Smallest tube bottom right side of the picture in the 2011 version is a 3CX100A7, the ceramic version of a 2C39. It also has a 7??? series number that escapes me at the moment.

Hi Paul G4DCV ,
I loved so much the 8877 ! These years there was a lot of cellflex, 7/16 connectors, and Hi-Voltage heavy junk everywhere !
Sorrily I have no 8877 more. There was a brand new one in original eimac box somewhere in my cellar, before I moved to another house and then to another , but nowadays I cannot find it anymore, much to my regret!
What you see on top of the Thomson CSF monster is the Amperex 8930 .... just to render the idea of it !
I would not love to have it falling on my feet, HI HI !!! That's why I love QRP so much ....   ";^))

But we'll better stop here the O.T. ... these have not so much to do with SDR , I suppose.
Have my best whishes ,

Hi Augusto

Hope they will forgive us for being off topic. I do use a SDR on receive with tube amps on TX..... What made me smile is how many of these have been in amplifiers I have owned and/or built over the years.

In the mid 1970s when I first came on 2m SSB I used the 829 and then the QQV06-40A which was better than the 829 because it was already neutralised. I have available 2 x 8930 in a K2RIW 70cm amp- those are nice tubes. In the shack is a rack mounted 8877 for 144MHz. And on 23cms I have a 7289 water cooled in a cavity so similar to the tube in the picture.

Then tubes not in your pictures, there's a pair of GI7Bs on 2m, a single GS31B on 2m which is my day to day amp, and a single 3-500 on HF (I dont do much HF so just need QRP on those low frequencies :-)

Now that Thomson is interesting!!

Have a great Christmas

Hi Group

like I said I would be put in my place, the strange thing is I have seen a "qqvo6-40"  as used an ex-wd amplifiers ,for some reason it did not register in my grey matter.

also I have a 4cx250b "kicking about" but I also have an " amp uk ranger" based on 4x 811,s , sorry to say I bought it and have used it ,if I say 10 times, I would be liying the truth is :-

I am more interested  in using the earth and the environment , rather than trying to change things, I rest my case before I dig myself a hole.

`  

to Simon G4ELI/HB9DRV

please accept my apologies for leading this bunch astray , I will considder myself being severely "scolded" and sent out to live with dogs and that’s a whole new story.

those that want to know more  need to  ask simon or contact me direct

               

 

 

Regards

Paul G4DCV ,
the Thompson CSF TH382 beam tetrode data summary :
Heater 4,2V 125A , Anode 6,5kV 4.5A ; Anode dissip. 12500 W , fmax 1000MHz .
Not for ham uses, hi ... More here: http://www.g8wrb.org/data/Thales/TH382.pdf
The site is interesting in that there are lot of tubes data sheets listed.
Maybe it helps somebody .
Again, my best wishes to you all !
