    I have several 6V6, 6SN7, and a 6L6G (ST envelope) tube with the
    same coating, they are all good.
    Just for kicks, I sometimes plug the 6L6G into a Fender Champ clone.

    I was looking in an old QST and a particular manufacturer of SSB transmitters claims in their ads that they passed on the 6146 tubes and went with audio tubes, 6550, I think, due to distortion issues. They found the audio tube worked really good at HF as an amplifier and the better linearity reduced distortion as they were used as linear amplifiers in the SSB transmit scheme as opposed to class C finals such as a CW or plate modulated AM rig.
