It's nice to know they used the same valves I have in my AWA 'walkman'. It's amazing how all military receivers and tranceivers were so well made though. It would not have been easy carrying them through the war.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

Hi Brad,
Can you post up a pic of your AWA, would love to see what it looks like.

Yeah, the good ol' 1r 1s 1t series and yes, they are very well put together radios.
