The 'New Millenium' Projects

There's no keeping up with the website. I accumulated all my outstanding photos for a permanent "under construction" page and will fill in the details as time permits. Most of these will not have links to larger photos or detailed descriptions. These are mostly from 2002-2003.


Atwater Kent 856
(1935)
A great American tombstone set. Just finishing up with it.

December 2003

Addison 64
(1953)
This is a Canadian made set. Super receiver with tuned RF amp stage.

November 2003

Andrea 12F5
(193?)
Cute little table set. Andrea is one of the FADA brands.

February 2003

Barker 88
(1946)
This is a UK made set. A very interesting history around this one. Barker survived WW2 using surplus military components resulting in a very solid radio.

June 2003

B&O Master 38

B&O Master 38
(1938)
You all know B&O's reputation. This is their table model for 1938.

July 2002

Volksempfanger
DKE 38

(1938)
I had the pleasure of working on this one for my buddy Rafa here in PR. This "Peoples Set" is an interesting piece of WW2 history.

November 2003

GE 201
(1946)
This one also belongs to Rafa who I did the restoration for. This model came in both bakelite and wooden cabinets.

September 2003

GE 218
(1951)
This early FM set is notable for its crisp "modern" FM sound. Not muffled like so many other early FM sets.

November 2003


Geloso G.51/220
(1950?)
A three-band Italian set. A very good performer with nice European styling.

September 2003

Halson 200
(1937)
This was a real junker for restoration but now looks very nice and plays well.

August 2003




Howard 482
(1947)
An FM converter for connecting to older radios. This Howard unit is a much better performer than the well known Pilotuner.

October 2003

Komsomolets

Komsomolets
(1947)
This is an early Russian crystal set. It was the award-winning design of a competition held at the time fixed detector crystals became available.

This is the 2-band version of a popular Canadian set done up in blue.
