I was able to confirm in the 8/e maintenance manual that the bulb is the
1209219 (page 5-1).

Robert Krten also describes a technique for taking Augat machine sockets and
making sockets for the bi-pin bulbs, to minimize soldering/desoldering on
the relatively delicate fron-panel traces. lists the CM2309 for $1.38, but with unknown availability.
