The whole point of the 6L7 is to ensure maximum isolation between oscillator and signal, and to provide a mixer which is efficient at VHF where stable oscillation would require a separate VHF oscillator triode. For applications where a self-oscillating mixer (ie. pentagrid converter) could provide adequate performance there were other Octal types specifically designed for this purpose.
The valve has its own screening with an internal metalisation on the inside of the envelope.
The classic envelope is 36 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 96 mm tall.
