That sounds like an old Magnatron, in a former life we used to use a lot of
Varian Maggies.

Does it look like a normal tube (glass), or is it all metal, with a
rectangular hole?  If it has the hole, the size of the hole will indicate
what band it is on.

If it's am maggie, the good bet is that it's bad after 40 years.
