Description

The VT 32 was supplied to the British Government and is electrically the same as the British R, but uses a tubular bulb shape and does not have a serial number. Earlier versions of the tube were spherical with an R stamped on the glass bulb. In these the element assembly was vertical. In the VT32 they were horizontal. The letters VT stood for Valve Transmitting - so named and as used by the British military.
