    If it had uranium glass interfaces, I'd think "Eimac". The guy to ask was my mentor, who worked in R&D there, but he passed several years ago.

    I'm thinking a P-38 Space Modulator.

    It is obviously a valve-powered plumber's friend.

    Traveling wave tube turned into a piece of art. Do a Google image search, pretty sure that's what it is.

    I guess they had to start somewhere. The stuff I worked with was operated up in the gigahertz realm.
