This paper describes the new and large hot-cathode mercury-vapor rectifier tube that is used in the plate power rectifier of the Crosley (WLW) 500-kilowatt broadcast transmitter. Design features resulting in improved operation of mercury-vapor tubes are discussed together with the operating characteristics. An analysis of the advantages of the unit half-wave type of rectifier tube is made.
