  • Released September 1946
  • LW, MW and SW wavebands
  • 5 Valves (ECH35, EF39, EBC33, AL33 and AZ31)
  • A.C. Mains
  • HT energised speaker.
  • Original cost 22 1s.
NOTES Just a typical 1940's set.
SERVICE DATA There was a copy of the "Trader" service sheet 800 on CD#1
CURRENT STATE Slightly scruffy but basically sound.

Every wax capacitor leaks like a sieve. The record is held by the audio output coupling capacitor which, with 100v HT (and no valves fitted) is trying to put 50v on the output grid. I need a new soldering iron to progress further, as I swear that they didn't use solder, they welded the components in place !
WHERE FOUND Can't remember where I found it, but doubt it cost me more than a tener.
