Default 6BQ5 UL Curves?

Where can I find UL curves for a 6BQ5? For EL34 would also be helpful.

The other question is what happens to ra?

Here you will find EL84 / 6BQ5 pentode with 40% UL at Eg2 = 300V

Which, BTW, shows a very standard operation condition situation like with the Mullard 5-10 and all its numerous clones (that is why I made this plot). Okay, Mullard states Eg2=315V for the original model 5-10, but hey, deviation from the Eg2=300V plot will be well within valve tolerances...

Regards,

Tom

For example, have a look at this Sofia Audiomatica plot.

For rising values of screen FB ratios (screen FB essentially is cathode FB, indeed) the dynamic internal anode resistance will fall.
