DIODE UNITS -- Two

The two diode plates are placed around a cathode, the
sleeve of which is common to the triode unit. Each diode
plate has its own base pin. Diode curves in the front
of the RECEIVING TUBE SECTION apply to the 26C6.

Additional curves applying to the 26C6
are shown under Types 6R7 and 6SR7.
