The '34 is a super-control pentode recommended for use primarily as a radio-frequency amplifier and intermediate-frequency amplifier in battery-operated receivers employing the '30, '31. '32, and/or '33 where economy of filament current drain is important.

The '34 is very effective in reducing cross-modulation and modulation-distortion over the usually range of signal voltages without the use of antenna potentiometers or auxiliary volume control switches. This super-control characteristic makes the tube uniquely adaptable to the r-f and i-f stages of receivers employing automatic volume control.

The use of a suppressor is an important feature of the '34. In comparison with the usual type of screen grid tube operated under similar conditions, the '34 has a much higher plate resistance and a considerably increased range of voltage swing. Furthermore, a high value of mutual conductance is maintained.

The suppressor is connected inside the tube to the filament. During operation of the tube, the suppressor eliminates the secondary emission effects which limit the voltage swing permissible in the usual screen grid tube at low plate voltage, that is, at a plate voltage approximately equal to the screen voltage. The suppressor in the '34, therefore, makes possible efficient operation of this tube at a relatively low plate voltage. This may be greater than, equal to, or slightly less than the recommended screen voltage.
