The 2K33, made by Raytheon, is a mechanically tunable reflex klystron that operates in the 22 to 25 GHz band with a 40mW output. The tube is tuned by varying the length of the envelope through a flexible metal disk seal, a large mechanical lever arrangement on the top of the tube provides for this function. This unit lacks the bracket and tuning knob seen on some similar klystrons that is used for mechanical tuning, though the mounting flange is present and a knob could easily be installed.
