The 6SQ7GT is a double diode triode sharing a common cathode.
The triode is seen at the top with the carbonised anode, the double diodes are seen as the anodes between the triode and the pinch. The screening box is connected to the cathode and the diode anodes are the vertical rods placed either side of the cathode within the screen.
This valve was designed for superhet receiver use where the diodes would act as signal detector and AGC detector and the triode would be the first stage audio amplifier.
The triode is placed at the top of the envelope.
The triode has a small anode with a side wing for extra area and to connect to the supports. The diodes are the rods inside the bright screening box that is connected to the cathode.
The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 59 mm tall.
