I overlooked the suppressor voltage you had listed. With the relatively
high positive voltage on the suppressor grid, and audio on the cotrol/screen
grid, it looks to me like this would better be called a pentode connected as
a tetrode, not as a triode. The suppressor grid, with the steady +DC acts
more like a screen grid, and the control/screen grid act like a control
