The Type 43, is an audio output pentode that is designed for use in receivers with a series heater chain. It is electrically identical to the IO based 25A6. The valve is rated for use in low power single ended output stages.

The copper g1 supports connect to a heat radiating fin above the top mica.

The classic envelope is 45 mm in diameter and, excluding the UX6 base pins, is 103 mm tall.
