Did AWA publish data for these? The AS128 is is thought to be equivalent to the AC128, the AS148 the BC548, and the AS158 the BC558, but the rest of them are a grey area.

I think you're right and some AWV transistors types did follow a pattern in regards to the Philips numbering system.

I do have some AWV transistor data sheets. I'll have a look when I get home later on today.

Thanks very much. I've been searching through mid-60s E.A.'s trying to find info on them, but the AWV ads generally plug their valves.
