ID = 33360
United States of America (USA)
Brand: General Electric Co. (GE); Bridgeport CT, Syracuse NY
Tube type:  CW-magnetron 
Identical to ZM-6086

Filament Vf 2.5 Volts / If 2 Ampere
Description Low-power voltage-tunable CW magnetron (VTM). 1420 to 2607MHz, 0.036W minimum out, 1.66MHz/V tuning sensitivity.
The VTM, Voltage Tuned Magnetron, covers a wide frequency range. Its operation is quite different from that of resonant cavity types, where bunching is easily accomplished due to the high Q of the cavities. To have electron bunching, the VTM must operate with an electron current lower than the space-charge limited one: this is accomplished using a cold cathode in addition to an injection system with a filamentary cathode. The operating principle is described in the application note given for the ZM-6222 type.
