Guys this is a magnificent set. I bought it at the latest Canberra HRSA auction and I love it . It has a ARTS&P sticker on the back which you will see in the photos I sent. I haven't seen anything like this one and its a TRF. Photos sent.

Hope those photos appear before the one week shutdown for maintenance.

Indeed they shall.

The text on the ARTS&P is the giveaway. Dominion of New Zealand instead of Commonwealth of Australia points to an NZ set. The Kiwis also spelt 'licence' incorrectly, which was also the case on the Australian labels for 1934 and 1935.

It's a superhet. Model 732 from 1947. Cosmetic condition looks excellent.

Schematic is here: https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/philco_732.html

Yes it's in excellent condition. I bought it from John McKilwaine at the HRSA meeting yesterday. I wonder why he said it was a TRF . It's got 3 shortwave bands . Can't wait to recap this baby.
