RCA 6AF6G Magic Eye Tube  
Written by AnubisTTP on 2010-09-08  


The 6AF6 is a traditional circular 'cats eye' style tuning indicator in a small, stubby octal-base envelope. This truncated envelope size is possible due to the fact that the 6AF6 lacks an internal triode, and as such will not work with many tuning eye circuits unless an external triode is added. Each of the two 'vanes' on the 6AF6's display can be opened and closed individually.

The 6AF6G has a shorter envelope than most other top-view tuning eye tubes.
