Metal type 6V6 and glass
octal type 6V6-GT are used
as output amplifiers in
automobile, battery-
operated, and other
receivers in which reduced
plate-current drain is
desirable. Type 6V6-GT
may be supplied with pin
No.1 omitted. Tubes require
octal socket and may be
mounted in any position.
The 6V6 and 6V6-GT are
equivalent in performance
to type 6AQ5A.
