TubePad 6.0 Tube Chart

Quick Reference Data

Name: 6AG5
Use:
Miniature tube type used in compact radio equipment as an rf or if amplifier up to 400 MHz. The two cathode leads facilitate isolation of the input and output circuits thus helping to minimize degeneration.
Notes: Tube requires miniature 7-pin socket and may be mounted in any position.
