Haltron CV8067

I just added a CV8067 to the site. This is one of a number of Haltron valves I have noticed recently on eBay where the valve just carries the CV number. All those I have noticed are in the CV8xxx range.

Now K1001 does permit this but specifically when it is “impractical, on account of physical limitations” – see here¬†(pdf) section 4.1.4. It is hard to see how a valve such as this example could not carry the full CV information. On on a subminiature valve, but not here.

The valve came in a Haltron box with no markings, and a label attached giving the CV and NSN numbers.

Looking at the valve the printing is slightly different too, as if the original Haltron marking is the original and the CV number added later. There is no obvious evidence of the civilian part number being removed, but of course it may just have been cleaned off sufficiently well as to leave no trace.


Another little sequence completed – I now have all four magnetrons from CV1475 to CV1478. These are four frequency variants and successors to CV69A-D.

I have CV69A and D too, so now need CV69B and CV69C to complete that set.

There are two other sets of four – CV1479-82 which I have already and are CV76A-D (I have CV76B and C, so need A and D, and CV1483 to 87 which are CV99A-D. I am missing CV1483, and CV99B and D.


CV1931 update

For some time I had a CV1931 on the website, the example being a 6H6 metal double diode, though not 6H6 marked. Today I got a glass CV1931, also marked 6H6GT. I never checked before but the metal one is clearly incorrectly marked.

The CV Register has three CVs in a  series: CV1929 / 6H6G, CV1930 / 6H6 and CV1931 / 6H6GT. This makes sense.

For now I’ve left the page as-was but added the glass valve.
