Abstract

A circuit is described wherein the ordinary tetrode or screen-grid vacuum tube, when operated as a Dynatron exhibits the characteristics of a Thyratron or gas-filler triode. The method of determining the circuit constants and details of operation are given. Several simple applications such as quiet automatic volume control for radio receivers, "scale" counters, and sweep circuits are outlined.
