Your page suggests that an E80L has a different base than an EL80 (or 6M5).

Is this a misprint (i do not have an E80L to hand, to check for myself), or are all three of these valves essentially equivalent ?

Thankyou for your time.

Russell van Hooff.

the EL80 a.k.a. 6M5 is a consumer type tube / valve, while the E80L a.k.a. 6227 is a special longlife type. As they have different data and different base diagrams, I have removed the wrongful cross reference.
