Anyone know where I can get a complete spec sheet for the Eimac 15E?

It's a physically small, glass triode, used (I'm told) as an output tube in
aircraft radar.  Evidently, a long time age.

All connections are pins.  Two out the bottom are filament, one out the top
is the grid, and the plate comes out the side.  Certainly a different

I have some specs.  The max plate voltage is 2000 volts.  The filament
voltage is 5.6 volts, which I suspect, since, if it's a radar tube, designed
for pulse-service, Eimac often used a higher-than-normal voltage for that

Anyway, I've got an urge to build something and that tube is so (dare I say)
cute that I'd like to build a semi-QRP CW rig around it.
