The only scale with this MOS pattern that's a really significant minimum of harmonic entropy is srutal/pajara, in which the period plus the generator is 3/2. Other scales include shrutar, in which the generator is half of that (about a quartertone), so 3/2 is a period plus two generators; and hedgehog, in which two generators make a 6/5, and 4/3 would be three generators (except that it doesn't appear in this MOS).

In addition to the true MOS with pattern LssLss, all these scales also come in a near-MOS version, LsLsss, in which the period is the only generic interval that has more than two specific representatives.

Srutal/pajara probably has the lowest harmonic entropy of all 6-note MOS scales. The near-MOS version has even lower harmonic entropy.
