The ECH81 triode heptode was designed in for the role of frequency changer mixer in superhet receivers for AM reception. The two valve sections share a common cathode. The triode is to be used as the local oscillator feeding the 13 Volts amplitude sine wave to the heptode mixer. The anode circuit is tuned to enhance one of these signals, normally signal minus LO.

According to our profound investigations and tests, the tubes ECH81 and ECH83 are equal - not even tested differently, but only stamped differently. They naturally show different values for a different usage volts anode. See this forum article here about that. In recent discussions with Jacob Roschy , it has become apparent how popular and versatile the ECH81 tube is. Jacob has used it in many of his transmitter and receiver designs.
I include here some additional curves that explore the behaviour of G3, which is normally used for local oscillator LO injection. This choice of grid requires a relatively wide p-p input for efficient mixing, but this is easily supplied by the independent triode oscillator.
This leaves G1 independently available for RF input with remote cutoff. The nominal conversion transconductance is specified as uS. In the self-oscillating configuration, the nominal transconductance is uS, and up to uS with a heavy 1mA separate LO injection into G1. Comparing the effect of the control grid G1 on plate current to the effect of the LO injection grid G3. Note the non-inverting voltage gain and negative transconductance from G3 to G2-G4.
This is the nominal recommended screen bias. This is even more so, near 0V bias for either grid. The very modest gm3 has hardly any effect when added to gm1 by driving both grids simultaneously as seen in the next photo. Note how sudden and sharp it's cutoff is with V at the lowest trace.
Note how severe the attenuation is at low control grid G1 voltages at 0V. The third grid G3 retains a high impedance down to zero volts as can be seen in the right-most column. If ever I am having doubts about my lack of knowledge in the area of radio, I simply read one of your articles. Your brain is a scary thing indeed. All joking aside, thank you for yet another informative and interesting article. Please 'keep em coming!

Also, Radio wieder einschalten und Eingangskreise wobbeln. Drehen wir uns im Kreise?? Also Trimmer des Zwischenkreises verdrehen: Keine Wirkung erkennbar!
Kern verdrehen: auch keine Wirkung! Also hat die ECH81 Gas gezogen. Es sieht "ganz normal" aus. Hier arbeitet die ECH81 auch ganz "normal". MfG DR. Many members will probably have opted out articles with some other language flags - or they will not open languages they don't understand.
