6CG8A
Medium-Mu Triode - Sharp-Cutoff Pentode

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 9GFEIA Bulb: 6-2

Substitute Data

Preferred Substitutes ......................... 6FG7 6LJ8
Substitutes ................................... 6AT8 6BE8 6BR8 6CL8 6FV8 6JN8 6BM8
Source ........................................ RCA RC-29 - 1975

Application

Source ........................................ RCA RC-29 - 1975
Miniature type used as combined oscillator and mixer tube in color and black-and-white television receivers utilizing an intermediate frequency in the order of 40 MHz. When used in an AM/FM receiver,

Source ........................................ RCA RC-29 - 1975
the triode is used as an oscillator for both sections. In the AM section, the pentode is used as a high-gain pentode mixer; in the FM section, the pentode is used either as a pentode mixer

Source ........................................ RCA RC-29 - 1975
or as a triode-connected mixer depending on signal-to-noise considerations. Requires miniature 9-contact socket. Except for interelectrode capacirtances, this type is identical to 6X8.
