My Galaxy V's manual specifies that the 6LB6 tubes used as finals must be GE.  Will Zenith,Realistic or other 6LB6's work as well?  Will they work at all?  

Thanks in advance for helping me on my journey into the glow.

Your best answer to that question will probably come from calling 1-800-RFParts .They're ham-friendly , and they do list a 6LB6 on their website ( www.rfparts.com ) , though it doesn't specify a brand .

 You can check on the tube for the RMA #.  GE's was 5-188 if I remember correctly.  If the Zenith has that code on it, it was made for Zenith by GE.  The Realistic tube will most likely have all the original markings removed and the Realistic name reprinted on the envelope.  Radio Shack got tubes from anywhere and everywhere, rebranded and reboxed them.
