The 6CM6 is a low frequency power amplifier beam tetrode. It can be used as a Class A audio amplifier but was mainly designed as a vertical deflection amplifier in 525 line TV receivers. The 6BW6 has similar characteristics but different base connections. The characteristic curves match the 6V6 family and the 6BW6 is essentially the 6V6 on a B9A base..
