New member here. Happy World Radio Day!

This set belonged to my grandfather and he had it as long as I can remember. From what I have been able to find out about ARTS&P, the lack of a prefix on the serial number suggests it's post-1955 but I don't know exactly. I'd like to know the manufacturer and model number if possible.



My recollection is it originally ran off a PP6 type battery but at some stage he modified it to run of a pair of PP3s in parallel.

Looks very AWAish to me. Not sure on model.
