Qucik hello before I get into the nitty gritty of restoring a Healing AG 578E which I found on the nature strip up my road.

Looked like it was a deceased estate. Got it home and switched it on.

Crackle crackle....

I wouldn't keep it on for too long. Radios generally require refurbishment after so long since manufacture. Sometimes it is just replacement of a few dried out condensers and other times a full overhaul is needed. I am not familiar with the model, though your pictures may remind me, but the chances are that your radio is at least 50 years old.

On that note, welcome to the forums.
