Hello everyone, found this website while looking for information on vintage radios. My interest started when I bought an AWA C48 Straight Six battery radio about 15 years ago at a house contents auction. I wasn't able to do anything with it due to family responsibilities but now that I have some time, I would like to start restoring vintage radios that interest me. An Amplion AC4 speaker was also acquired at the same auction so it was good to have both. I do have a couple of other vintage radios that I plan to restore so I hope to gain experienced advice from fellow members as I progress.

Welcome to V-R.

There are some members on here with experience of sets of that vintage.

Hi GTC thanks for the welcome. The reference you provided on the C48 radio is the same as what I have but looks much better than mine. The radio here still has the original patina however there are some damage on the top due to I think exposure to too much sun on the lacquer. There are some other damage but I hope I can deal with them and restore the radio as much as I can. It will be an interesting learning process.
