Amazing, helpful and BRAND NEW! It's a necessary book for working with electron tubes. A nice benefit is that it's also brand new. No missing or hard to read pages. Also nice to have an "old" handbook that isn't about to disintegrate!

I had an older series manual that was falling apart. The manual I received from Antique Radio Supply is "suitable for framing!" Perfectly reprinted. Very satisfied.

This reproduction is printed quite well, and easily readable. It is quite a blessing to be able to purchase this book in 2018. The binding is as good as the original. Do not hesitate to buy this book if you need it. It's a keeper.

Get a copy of this while you still can. It really is nice to have a reprint paper copy on hand to thumb through to find oddball RF and TV tubes to use for audio projects. It's a shame AES no longer has the RCA RC-19, GE Essential Characteristics and other reprints it carried at one time. Audio Amateur no longer has the great reprint books it once had either. The world moves on.

This book appears to be a brand new reprint of an earlier RCA manual. I bought it as a reference/cross reference for tube data in order to help avoid bad information included in the tube data rolls on my EICO 667 Tube Tester. It may be of some help in that regard, but not a one-stop source for correct information for testing. The book, considered by itself, is a nice reference. There is an introductory section covering basic tube information, tube characteristics, applications, installations, safety precautions, interpretation of tube data, and a little bit on testing. The major portion of the book gives a lot of the technical data on a myriad of tube types. The tubes are listed in numerical order for ease of location within the book, and cover the voltage regulator tubes, beam power tubes used in amplification, as well as many of the receiving tubes used in TV and radio. For my purposes I have found it to be an excellent reference book, and well worth the price, which I though was reasonable as well.
