I've been trying to track down the Model and build year of a AWA portable radio ( I think it was built after 1955 and therefore does not appear in any AORSM's)I have posted pictures in the Tech section of these forums, anyway the ARTS&P label on the back is small and light green I think, it has No.6 and a 6 digit number 826238 does anyone know if you can track down the build date via this number?
The model number is either 679AZ or most likely 679PZ and has L55438 stamped on the chassis.

I have tried HRSA and other sites but no specific info. as to what the numbers represent or correspond to, just that after 1955 the 6 digit number was used into the early 60's?

Hi Mark
The Model 679PZ is a 6 valve portable.
The model 679P was released in 1956 and is a 6 valve 1.4v AC broadcast Portable.
The 679PZ is a modificatiom of the original model and would have been released later in 1956 or possibly in 1957.
I may be able to locate a circuit or more correctly a copy of AWA technical service data sheet.
hope this helps
