Tonight from the depths of the "Thermionic Realm" we received an 866 Rectifier tube from H. G. Fischer's SW Diathermy series!
A wonderful donation to the museum.
So we fired up of Diathermy to light some tubes...
Frank sent this electrodeless Uranium Glass tube.
I wound a coil with sheet rock mesh tape to see if it would work...
Run out, and had to use some paper...
Looks like it works fine!
