6SH7
Sharp-Cutoff Pentode

EIA Base & Outline

EIA Base: 8BKEIA Bulb: 8-1

Substitute Data

Substitutes ................................... 6SG7 6AB7 6AC7
Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947

Application

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
Metal type used as rf amplifier in high-frequency, wide-band applications and as a limiter tube in FM equipment. Similar to 6AU6 electrically. Features high transconductance with low grid-plate capacitance.

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
Suitable for frequencies up to 18 MHz (approx.). Two separate cathode terminals enable the input and output circuits to effectively isolated from each other.

Source ........................................ RCA RC-15 - 1947
This type is not recommended for high-gain, audio-amplifier applications because undesirable hum may be encountered. Requires octal socket and may be mounted in any position.
