"Also, For the 2-Dial, you lack a volume control in the audio section like more recent radios designs.  So,  input into the audio circuit does require the phono have its own volume control. You might look for an old earphone jack, of the…"

"Looked at your earlier posts to be reminded you have a 2-DIAL of 1931, not an Allwave Deluxe. Above all true, but you need a volume control too. Again refer to the owners manual. I have a 2-DIAL model with Scott supplied ERLA single play phono with…"

"Thanks.  No one has done this?  I was hoping someone has?   Since this is the early set, there is no band switching, just coil changing. I suppose one could pull a coil to silence background reception?  "

"First, any phono on the AW-12 needs a radio/phono switch. Or you need to make one. The radio requires a jumper ground to phono post for radio reception. (Study the circuit digram). When a phono pick-up is across the phono to ground posts, you need a…"

The All Wave 12 has the binding posts for a phono input.  I have read of the elaborate system they offered with tonearm and pick-up plus a microphone.  I would like to connect an RCA period correct phonograph with a magnetic pickup, horse shoe magnet type. How does one do this?   I believe the RCA pick-ups of this era had a DC resistance of around 75 ohms. Thanks!RonSee More

"OK, your 15-21 coils are backwards with the red dot. The red dot cap should be on the coil that has the single 4-turn winding. The cap without the red dot should be on the coil that has the enamel and cotton covered wires interwoven. Hope that makes…"

"It is not uncommon for the caps to come loose from the coils.  There is a fair chance that the caps of the eBay set were switched when replaced on the coils. Norman"

All Wave 12 coil identification

When I bought my radio it was missing a couple of the coils and I found replacements.  Recently there was an eBay auction  for a set of coils and the person took very good pictures of the coils.  I noticed a discrepancy between the ones pictured and mine.  The 15-21 and the 21-27 were opposite for which had the red dot.  I will include the picture I borrowed from eBay and the picture of mine.  Which is correct?The second set lying on the table scarf are mine. Ron BabbTacomaSee More
