Upper critical field data for U6Fe and U6Co are found to be markedly inconsistent with the weak coupling WHHM model. Nevertheless, excellent quantitative fits of Hc2 vs. T are obtained by using a modification of the WHHM model in which the orbital field is multiplied by a temperature-dependent enhancement factor.
