Hi all

Another item that I am looking for is any information on the Astor DPM. Circuit would be good start.

I have tried all the usual suspects (AORSM, Kevin Chants site, RM) but suspect its one of those "Missing" ones....

Also who does the speaker cloth these days. I remember when I was in Canberra (Nearly 10 Years ago) there was someone who traveled down from time to time with different cloth and knobs.

I am chasing the golden cloth that was in this set as well as some of the Red AWA Cloth from the Mantles (510 etc) and some authentic late 1930s to suit the AWA from another of my posts.


Astor DPM

Valve radios, They just don't make them like they used to

That is apparently chassis 151 1940 Normal suspects. 6J8, 6U7, 6B6, 6V6, 5Y3 Page 68 of TMRSM whatever that is?

I suspect that seeing that is a typical Astor (& others) run of the mill valve line up, it's probably back biased & similar to 354 / 654CL.

Rather the sort of thing I would attack, circuit or not. Especially if its not been Monkeyed with previously.

TMRSM whatever that is?

TVRSM = "Those Missing Radio Service Manuals,1939-1942". An HRSA publication. compiled by the late Ray Kelly

Rare as hen's teeth now. I thought I had a copy myself, but if I do then it is, of course, missing.

There may be value in finding out who has the copyright & do a reprint: Pre order to see if it's cost effective?

With copyright it becomes part of the estate & is passed onto the beneficiaries / a beneficiary (unless other arrangements were made). I do hold inherited copy rights.

Dan, The DPM is the same as the DP which was the console version. Will email a circuit and layout to you this evening.

Cheers, Graham...

Sorry Dan, having a few distractions, will get them to you early am tomorrow.

Mail sent.
