**6WTN**, if the attempt is made to use it as an actual scale, would optimally divide the just perfect fifth into three equal parts, each of size 233.985 cents, which is to say (3/2)^(1/3) as a frequency ratio, alternating these with three equal steps of another interval between 200 and 266.667 cents in its patent tunings. This will create three equally-spaced intervals between an interval between 600 and 800 cents and the just perfect fifth. If we want to consider it to be a temperament, it tempers out 16/15, 21/20, 28/27, 81/80, and 256/243 as well as 5edo.
