Default Obscure radio tube

I am seeking information about the obscure 8106 tube, as I have recently come across one in an old Narco Omnigator Mk2. Does this tube serve any purpose in audio?

here is what I found online

8106--small pentode, used in mobile radio equipment. Equipment could be modified to accept 12BY7 or SV83.

Apparently it has a 13.5v heater, so I would assume a car radio tube or the like. It is listed as a beam pentode on tubesandmore.com. Couldn't find a datasheet online...

I have a couple of those from VHF taxi radios. Yeah, treat it like a 12BY7. Only the plate disspation is 5.5 watts, IIRC, which is impressive for it size!
