6h23N test setting?
I need to test a pair of 6H23N tubes to find which one has the best matched sections. I have a TV3 Military tester.

Is it alright to use the 6922/6DJ8 settings or is there a better set of numbers to use?

Much appreciated.

They are slightly different, 6N23P has a little higher max plate V and heater I (beside some other small differences). You can test it as 6922/6DJ8.
E88CC is different from them.

So I am safe at least for not damaging the tubes and just matching sections in my tube tester set at 6922/6DJ8?

Yes, don't worry, you are safe to test them. Before doing it check if pinouts are the same (i think they are), datasheets have easy to read info

Pin outs are the same. Thanks so much for the help! :D

You might want to learn what an E88CC is, see it's datasheet here:

Why do you need to match triodes? Do you have schematic?

Sections match. Thanks for the data sheets. This is a circuit that needs balanced halves because its splits a signal. No schematic.
