Front View [24K]

  • Released March 1954
  • LW and MW wavebands
  • 5 valves (UCH42, 10F9, 10LD3, UL41 and UY41)
  • A.C. or D.C. Mains
  • Original cost £10 1s 5d
NOTES A rather cute dinky little Murphy set.

The lack of space on the front means tha the wavechange switch had to be hidden around the back of the set.
SERVICE DATA I have an electronic copy of the "Trader" service sheet 1375.
CURRENT STATE A few flakes of white paint chipped off. Also suffering from DAC90itus, specifically a couple of air vents burnt off the back cover due to the mains dropper resistor.

The dial cord has snapped and the wiring around the waveband switch is a mess, having been replaced by modern single strand wiring. Lord knows why.
WHERE FOUND May 2001 Drayton Manor computer fair amateur radio rally with a Cossor CR1200U and a Stella ST113U for £20.
