It is indeed a Monarch by Astor (or more correctly Electronic Industries), made in 1938 if the ARTS&P prefix is an E. Not sure of the model number at this stage.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

Very similar, apart from the push button vs rotary tuning.

That black box (aircraft ones are orange) suggests that that one may be battery eg 6V or 32V.

Need more info; 32V or 6V may still have 6V valves and the one I cant see (ARTS&P says 5) perhaps a 6X5?

G'day Steve,

Life's throwing a few hurdles my way at the moment but all's well I reckon. You?

Just a comment about the dial on this radio. It looks incomplete, hence a visual difference between this and the one in the linked thread.

Have a look at a Monarch 949.

6 Volt, Vibrator, Dual Wave with Telephone Dial tuning.
1C7G, 1F7G, 1F7G & 1F5G. AORSM Pages 213 & 214, Vol. 3.

Update: Monarch 948 (FH) , Monarch 949 (HG) & Astor 931 (HG). Astor Alladin (FH) may have used the same chassis.

Astor often stamped a number into the chassis, it may pay to have a really good look for the numbers as appear in AORSM's, as well as the valve line up.

I see an E under the wire (or what ever) is that ELQ? I cannot see all of the gang, If it has 3 there is likely an RF amp before the mixer. and the vibrator may be synchronous, eliminating the rectifier.

Still need valve lineup. Know where they go, or one at a time. Careful with the top caps prise between cap top & clip if that is stubborn. Also prise the tube base rather than pull on the glass.
