small a.c/d.c mains valve radio was made in 1959, and was one of many radios
to have p.c.b mounted technology. It has medium & long wave band coverage.
The valves used in this receiver were:-
UCH81, UBF89, UCL82, UY85
The cabinet front had been chipped on its paintwork, so I took the liberty
to re-spray it in white.
It required extensive replacement of resistors and capacitors, modifying the
connections between the volume control and the p.c.b, and adding negative
feedback to improve sound quality.
The circular dial cover can be a problem on these radios, as there is a small
piece of metal that locks it in to place in the cabinet ( i.e ,a groove on
the internal part of the cover). It has to be in a correct position to lock
this, otherwise the cover falls off.
It is still an impressive looking small radio, and it makes a good comparison
to the Stella ST110U ( I used the Philips manual to repair the Stella, so
the layout is practically the same for both radios
