UCC85 / 26AQ8 Double Triode Valve / Tube by Marconiphone (T



Report this ad


For sale is a UCC85 (26AQ8 USA equivalent) double triode valve / vacuum tube by Marconiphone, fully tested and working.

The UCC85 is a low impedance, high gain device for use at VHF in FM radio and TV tuners as the front end stage and working at 100MHz+.

This particular example is in good, clean condition with original Marconiphone markings mostly present. It has recently been fully tested on my Mullard High Speed Valve Tester and shows no faults and 90%+ nominal new emission on both sections.

So, a realistic but reasonable price for a rare chance to acquire a sought after and useful valve / tube in guaranteed, working condition. Ideal item for vintage radio restorers, experimenters, collectors alike.

Why risk a buying an untested 99p valve AND the postage cost, when you can buy guaranteed testing and working ones from Helmore & Hunt?
