I just noticed with its incredible performance it doesn't pick up much noise from my rubbish leds.. wonder why?

This radio has ten dial bulbs. It must have been really high end. The only change I will make is a 3 core power cable. I have ordered a tuning valve for it as well.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

The Russians knew how to make long-lasting valve radios that's for sure. I expect it would work perfectly well, although I'd still check out the electros to be sure they are ok.

What is the valve line-up?

6K7, 6A7, 6K8 , 6A7, 6E5C, 6K7, 6R7, 6H7c, 606c,606c, 5U3C now some of the numbers like 606C had the squiggly lines through the 0 and the u so I wasn't sure how to replicate them I know one is equivalent to a 6f6.

That looks to have a extended MW band of up to 2 megs as there was some stations above the 1650 1700 end as I may ad as when teaching in Monash uni I covered a bit of east german radio as they did have a few out of band stations with fixed radios for the public, the also packed up the big VLF radio station called Goliath ,the ruskis and put in on a long train and moved the lot to the USSR area as was used for submarine commuications worked around 15 to 25 kHz and transmit was from 100 up to 1000 Kw a massive set up worth a google

If the circuit could be pinned down, that would be interesting.

One notes the wiring to the lamp holders; Clearly not a happening, neat & tidy.

The circuit diagram is in radio museum under Leningrad Kozitski. I will have a good look later.

In my bid to forget what's happening around us I decided to get started on this beautiful set.
It's such a pleasure to work on such a well designed and engineered set. I thought it would be hard but no it isn't. It's built like a tank and easy to understand. This set has never been earthed so the first thing I will do us fit a 3 core cable. I fitted a new magic eye tube and Presto it works but will replace the 1 meg resistor.
I found one of the electros was disconnected but the radio still works.

Well this went very smoothly. I found the 1 Meg resistor in the eye tube plug and could hardly get a reading out of it. I replaced it and hey Preston she is a worker. Replaced 5 dead dial bulbs and replaced the old 2 core power leads with one of my new cotton covered 3 core leads and the difference is chalk and cheese , this set will never leave my home.
Such a pleasure to work on such a well engineered set.
