/MW and 3xSW Bands - Plastic Cabinet
This set was offered by my
cousin . It didn't work, because there was no local oscillation .
This tube set introduced the ferrite antenna, giving a very good gain on
MW signals and, when we put one external aerial, the urban noise of TV/s
and UPS regulators is improved. So, no antenna is needed in urban areas
to listen to the MW band.
With this radio model, in 1965 I listened the Beatles, the Doors and Tom
Jones on Radio Caroline broadcastings in the midnight propagation ; just
here in Portugal.
In this model there is a tube evolution, with the introduction of small
type tubes for 6,3 V filament and a plastic cabinet instead of bakelite.
Valves : EZ80 (mains
rectifier) ; ECH81 ( mixer ) ; EF89 ( if ampl. ) ; EBC81 ( if ampl. +
rectifier) ; EL84 (output ) ; DM71 Magic eye.
