The 1614 is nothing but a 6L6 selected for RF  use. Look at the metal base directly above the plug crimp on any 1614 and I'll bet you will see 6L6 stamped into the metal.

>Maximum voltage for the 6L6 is 360 volts. Fot the 1614, it is 500 volts.
>That is why the ranger, which uses 500 volts or a bit more uses the 1614
>instead of the cheaper 6L6. The 1614 is RF rated as a transmitting tube
>while the 1614 is not. A 6L6GC is a pretty close relative.. My $0.02..Mike
