Default 6GB8 data sheet translation needed

Hi, are there any Japanese-speaking (or, rather, Japanese-reading) forum members who would be able to translate some bits of the Toshiba 6GB8 tube datasheet? I have a handfull of used ones, they look good at Pa 35W, Pg2 10W, 130W from a pair in AB1, and I'll be happy to trade a couple of them for a translation of at least the non-guessable parts. I attach a part of the data sheet, at the moment I'm particularly interested in what seems to be SE pentode operation at 250V (p1, LH column) yielding 15W, but I can't figure out what is 20 m-ohms, what is 15K ohms, and what is 15 (the line above the 1,600ohm load). But I'd like also to understand the 320V/40W p-p and what seems to be the triode operation on the lower right. The power-crazies amongst us may be interested in the fixed-bias p-p figures.
please pm me if you wish
cheers from New Zealand

I can start the translation, at least:

The regime is "Single A1" and Application: (can't read it)

- The 20m Ohms is given as the Transconductance so a think they mean 20m Mho (20mA/V);
- the 15K ohms is "Plate inner resistance", i.e. Ra

Next, "Push-Pull AB1"
"cathode resistor": 60 ohm
load: 2500 ohm

Table, first row: "Grid 1 signal input voltage rms"
2nd row "plate current"
3rd row "grid 2 current"
4th row "output"
5th row distorton

Yes, the last application has "2nd grid bound to plate"
Table, first row: "Grid 1 signal input voltage rms"
2nd row "plate current"


Then, the triode-mode PP mode is given.

Thanks, Rod, would you like a couple of used ones to play around with, if I can figure out how to safely get them to you from NZ?
