Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
MEF6 TEF6 VEF6
The EF6 pentode was designed for radio receivers, where it would be used for RF and IF amplification. The later EF8 was a variable μ type for automatic gain control in IF stages.
Our other EF6 is un-screened but this one is magnificent in its red metallic screening paint.
This EF6 is new and the box gives the price as 11/6 eleven shillings and six pence and the purchase tax was 2/6 two shillings and six pence. The pre-decimal UK currency had the pound divided into 20 shillings and each shilling divided into 12 pennies.
The classic envelope is 29 mm in diameter and, excluding the Ct8 base pins, is 84 mm tall.
References: Data-sheet & 1043. Type EF6 was first introduced in 1938.
