Do any of you savants have any old ITT thyratron specs? I just picked up an 8376, an old mil-spec ceramic thyratron. I suspect it was made for radar duty, but I haven't found anything about it on the Triton site. It's also a bit odd in that it doesn't have a grid tab. From the size (3" X 4.5"), it's probably good for about 25-30 kV and around 2-3kA, but I'd like to know a bit more precisely...
