Front view [36K] Tuning Waveband Switch On/Off and Volume

  • Released September 1955
  • LW, MW and VHF FM wavebands
  • 6 Valves (UCC85, UCH81, UF89, UABC80,
    UL41 and UY41)
  • A.C./D.C. Mains
  • Original cost 17.8s.9d
NOTES One of the more attractive bakelite sets of the mid 50's, although the plastic grill area isn't the easiest thing to clean.

The circuitry is very much typical of the era, about the only remotely unusual feature being the UCC85 being mounted on its own seperate metal plate mechanically decoupled from the main chassis, preumably t reduce problems with valve microphonics.
SERVICE DATA I have a copy of the Trader service sheet 1315.
CURRENT STATE Excellent condition, bar the hole in the rear cover (due to heat) and the missing control on the front.

Out of curiosity, just where do these old radio knobs dissapear to ?
WHERE FOUND Another donation from Richard.

I bet putting a mains dropper, UY41 and UL41 in their own
little confined space doesn't create heat problems ...
Hole burnt in rear cover [8K]
... NOT !
