The application of a grid controlled gas discharge tube, tacitron, RCA Type 6441, to radar pulse amplifiers and modulators is examined. The tacitron is found useful in some amplifier applications and one method of extending the applications with external excitation is described. As a modulator for a constant starting phase pulsed R.F. oscillator of one type, the tacitron proves to be a useable tube. As a pulse amplifier for pulse widths under 1,000 microseconds with a very low percentage distortion or as a capacity modulator, it has limited applications.
