They're fine if you work on a lot of Motorolas, Panasonics and Panasonic built sets. Also used in European built sets.

Was gonna say, I don't remember ever running into these. I think I have a few of those too.

It's real close to a 6BL8, with a 9 volt 300ma heater.

Looks like a good sub for a 9GH8. Too bad it's a 9V / 300 mil heater, I have an RCA 19-incher full of 5GH8's

I never found the 6BL8 to be a good sub, for a 6GH8.
Closer to a 6EA8 or maybe a 6U8.

ESRC in Fla. has 5GH8's for a buck a piece. I'd buy a mess of them.

I'm glad to see my posting of these tubes has sparked some discussion with you television guys

So you know, I'm not here out of the blue to spring "tubes for sale" on you guys. Rather, I'm visiting from Audiokarma where I usually hang out. I'm in the process of (slowly) sorting through a crap load of tubes I recently picked up. I'm finding that most are TV related. Hopefully you guys will find some interest in them cuz I'd prefer to pitch them here before they go to that auction place

Thanks!

Seems this tube was used in 1950's British VHF TV tuners, according to another website:
