During the sixth quarter period, one Phase II tube, type 8301KU-275 serial No. 9 was made and shipped to the Electronics Research and Development Laboratories at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey as Contract Item 1-1-1, as Engineering Sample. It wast not operated or tested at the specified power level as the Phase II test set was still under construction. In spite of this limitation, three more tubes designed for cooling with air were built and processed. They were made under a company sponsored program which is aimed at fields of application which do not require cooling by water, and they are included in this report as they are otherwise identical with Phase II TUBES. Life tests in SLAC modulators at Stanford with two tubes of this type produced earlier were continued with satisfactory results as one of these tubes completed approximately 1700 hours of operating time at the end of the period covered by this report.
