Application

Source ........................................ RCA R-10 - 1932
The '30 is a detector and amplifier tube of the three-electrode type. It has a coated filament which takes as little power as possible consistent with satisfactory operating performance. This feature makes the '30 particularly suitable in battery-operated radio receivers employing the '32, '34, '31 and/or '33 where economy of filament current drain is important.
