The Western Electric 730A is a non-tunable magnetron with an oscillating frequency of 9.375GHz, +/-30MHz. The 730A was used in military radar equipment. Note that the wooden base is part of the tube's original packing material, not an installable component. This base would mate with a tongue-and-groove arrangement in the tube's packing carton to hold it firmly in place.
