Guys, got a few Amperex tubes, and there is JEP written on the tube. Does anybody know what it stands for? The box is formerly white with just a tube number and JEP printed on it. I'm assuming it's an earlier version of JAN.

I Bing'ed it (try Bing instead of the usual) and came up with Western Electric

I've been using Bing lately with no complaints here

Just means "JAN by Amperex". You can probably guess what JRC, JTL, JG stood for... others are more obscure.
