YES! ok I need more than 5 words.... The numbers 6146 is the type description. The A, B, C are revisions, often the envelope size. There used to be tube substitution books available and the REAL ARRL handbooks have the tube section in the back ....Until they were replaced by party conductors. REMEMBER - Real Radios Glow in the Dark!
