I have acquired a wee 4 valve, 6D6, 6C6, 25L6G, 25Z5, Air King model 222 radio. I have restored it & it goes remarkably well. It is American but has been modified, by the addition of a transformer, for 230V. Radio Museum doesn't want to know about it but I figure that there may be some in Australia that are similar. Does anyone have one or know anything about them? Don't seem to be able to add a photo or circuit?

Radio Museum doesn't want to know about it

Not sure what you mean by that?

It's on RM here: https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/airking_222lw.html

I submitted the circuit to them and after some lengthy discussion they decided that the transformer was not an American addition for an export model.
