This set came from Swansea
and is a more traditional type of home built receiver, being
painstakingly constructed from wood held together by small brass
screws. The material is a thin plywood, the same sort of wood
that was used for shipping tea from India. Surely the right material
for a home-brew set?
The valves are a mixture...
an indecipherable Ever Ready (perhaps a K30?); a Mullard PM1LF
and a new looking ex-government CV1246 (M-OV P2). It has two
round shaped inter-valve transformers, a pair of "What are
the Wild Waves Saying" basket coils fitted into a simple
variometer device operated from a side-mounted control; a single
glass resistor and a single green bakelite condenser.
The tuning condenser looks very
old, having an ebonite frame and the filament rheostat is the
simplest of devices, having no case.
The rear panel is quite interesting
as it looks very early and is possibly a panel removed from a
surplus WWI receiver or transmitter. Can anyone recognise it?
