This Noise Model NS-LB generator was made by Aerospace Research, Inc. of Boston, MA. It uses a 5722 Noise diode tube with a Tungsten filament using the "shot effect". There is a solid state control circuit that varies both the DC filament current and the plate voltage in order to produce a variable excess noise.
The filament voltage needs to be varied from 2.0 to 5.5 Volts while the plate voltage varies from 10 to 200 Volts. The tube is speced up to about 500 MHz, but the construction of this noise generator may go higher.
NF (Noise Factor) = 20 * I * R
NFdb = 10 * LOG10 (20 * I * R)
where: I = Plate current in Amps, R = generator resistnace, 50 Ohms in this case.
Type-N male output.
