"Have you seen this up on eBay?  Was up at $300, then down, and back up at $270.  It's no beauty, but has some historical interest: https://www.ebay.com/itm/143677059601?ul_noapp=true"

"David, Thanks for the great advice. Appears that the tuning motor is shorted. Do you normally do a COMPLETE recap of the radio chassis?"

"Regarding the power switch on the volume control, 2 lugs are the main power switch. The other two lugs are (I think)  power for a phonograph if used. I have a remote control Philharmonic on my bench and just starting restoration.  Suggest…"

Auction find

Posted by Kent King on July 26, 2020 at 2:18pm 3 Comments

Picked up this one at an auction in Indiana. Disgustingly dirty, but salvageable. Had the 15 in speaker, tweeters, and a Tauscher sound board! Cabinet is good to start...the whole set will require a lot of work but will be saved.

Scott SLRM National Radio R-302/URE-22 Connection

Posted by Chris Bowne on July 11, 2020 at 12:07pm 3 Comments

Nick has info that National was awarded a contract to build modified REE receivers in 1949. REE was the Navy… Continue
