6SK7
Remote-Cutoff Pentode

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 8NEIA Bulb: 8-1

Substitute Data

Substitutes ................................... 6AB7 6AC7 6AJ7
Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947

Application

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
Metal type used as rf or if amplifier in radio receivers. It features single-ended construction and interlead shields. Because of the remote-cutoff characteristic,

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
this type is able to handle large signal voltages without crossmodulation or modulation-distortion and are often used in receivers with avc. Requires octal socket and may be mounted in any position.
