Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The W63 is a screened pentode and was designed for intermediate frequency amplifiers in superhet receivers. It is high impedance type allowing for a high Q in the tuned anode circuit. It is the M-OV implementation of the 6K7G design.
The M-OV etched ellipse with the Type designation within identifies the origin.
The reverse is plain.
The classic envelope is 38 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins the valve is 104 mm tall.
References: Datasheet, 1040 & 1043. Type W63 was first introduced in 1937.
