Hi All,

I hail from QLD and I have been discussing this old radio I have with my children. We were wondering if someone could give us some guidance on its age and value.

It has 5 valves( picked this up from the discussions on this site) , console, 3 knobs on front, tuner dial window is small, brown and white corded power lead. Working

Down on the bottom of console is says " design number 10132. On the front (around tuner dial window) it says Radiola AWA. I have taken some photos of it but have not been able is site anything close on google.

Thanks for your time. Peter

It may be an idea to post photo's to Brad.

ARTS&P label may help date it. Would also be helpful to know what the numbers are on the valves. Often that is stencilled on the chassis.

If you do not know how to get at the valves or get them out, advise. Any without cans on them should be OK.

The number will be something like 6D6, 6A7. 80 (Not neccesarily these)Don't touch the numbers as some come off easily.

I say this, not knowing where you are technically with radio's?

Marc

Peter,

Welcome to the forums. If you would like your photos included in your post you can e-mail them to me at Brad.mail.vintage-radio.com.au and I will sort things out.

Please note that this e-mail address will only be active for another two weeks or so due to excessive spam and it'll be replaced with another after the 1st August. I'll announce details relating to this at the time.


Brad.

I will await photo's but 59 is not a valve I would expect in AWA. The others may well have the numbers that I mentioned. This set could be late thirties.

Thank you, I'm thinking that some person has replaced a valve in the past and this is the 59 model, I still can't send photos to Brad until I can email him but nthe late or early thirties sounds right Peter EH
