There are two notable harmonic entropy minima with this MOS pattern. The first is porcupine, in which two generators make a 6/5 and three make a 4/3. The range of porcupine tunings is about 2\15 to 3\22. Less well-known is greeley, in which two generators are still 6/5 but three fall quite short of a 4/3, but the scale happens to closely approximate a lot of higher-complexity intervals like 10/7, 11/7, etc.

Scales of this form are always proper, because there is only one small step.
