The Motorola Motrac series used the 5894 and then the 8643 as the final amplifier. Also, the Hallicrafters HA-2 and HA-6 transverters use the 5894.
There are a lot of 5894 tubes around. As such, they are not priced out of reach for most amateur radio operators.

> There was an article, in Electric Radio, sometime back, about modifying the Globe Champion to use 5894 tubes which are commonly available and considerably cheaper.
I have a Johnson 6N2 that uses the 5894 ...
A really cool VHF tube...
remember the Motorola or GE High Band mobiles that put the 5894
in a metal heatsink ?
