First one I've seen (GE L-660). Nothing in my parts list for it. Same base as a night light bulb, one of those usually work okay? I've got lots of clearance.<P>Thanks,<BR>Richard<P>------------------<BR>

The bulb you are probably looking for is a 6S6, which is a 120 volt screw in base lamp. However they don't seem to last long and I have replaced nearly all that I come into contact with with 4 watt night light bulbs. The 4 watters run considerably cooler, besides. Some of the older sets that used these bulbs will show discoloring from the heat generated by the hot bulbs.<BR>Curt<BR>And yes, at last look, the BC1T Gates AM transmitter at the local radio station still had it's 4 watt night lights in it!<P>------------------<BR>Curt, N7AH

Hi Richard,<P>I had one of these in a GE GD-60. 7-watt small screw base. I had one in stock to replace the original burned-out unit. Plenty of room (i.e. ventilation) in this cabinet. That was six months ago and haven't heard of any problems.<P>------------------<BR>73 de Leigh W3NLB | | Leigh@AtwaterKent.Info<BR><A HREF="http://www.AtwaterKent.info" TARGET=_blank>http://www.AtwaterKent.info</A> | | <A HREF="http://www.Synchrophase.info" TARGET=_blank>http://www.Synchrophase.info</A>

Hi,<BR> Just finished a radio with the nite light bulb. They must have been concerned about the heat because a tin plate was mounted over the bulb on the bakelite cases ceiling and partially in front of the grill cloth.<BR> Ken<P>------------------<BR>

No worries about heat with this one, lots of clearance. I'm going to use a 5 watt clear.<P>Richard<P>------------------<BR>
