Hi all.So the latest addition arrived today & in very good nic.Still a mystery (to me) as to why there`s an external transformer mounted on the side.Just seems odd.Labelled as Type 8117 Telecomponents Brookvale,there is a Black wire leading from beside the antenna socket to one side of transformer.From other side is a Red wire with bayonet fuse fitting.To all intents & purpose it looks original but could have been retro fitted many moons ago.Was told it works but need to get an aerial & speaker with bayonet fittings.(tried to change this to Tech forum but couldn`t).cheers

Maybe it is a noise filter in the power supply.

Tinradio,

There is a circuit diagram for this radio on the Kevin Chant web site. You need to carefully trace out where ALL the transformer wires go, and understand why, before applying any power to it.

G'day,

This device is a filter choke in the 6 volt power lead.

Cheers, Graham...
