The Radio Collection


RCA 28T This is a RCA 28T Table Model from the 1941 model year. This was another purchase from the local antique show here in Atlanta. After getting the radio home, I found the original manual and a RCA "Short-Wave Station List" tucked inside the radio, the only antique radio I ever got with an original manual. It has 3 bands of 540 to 1600 kc, 2.3 to 6.3 mc and 9.4 to 15.4 mc. It has 8 tubes which are 6SA7, 6SK7 (x2), 6SQ7 (x2), 6K6GT (x2) and a 5Y4G.

Artone This is a Artone radio (unknown model number) from, I would guess, the late 1940's. The Artone brand was made by "Affiliated Retailers, Inc." of New York, New York. This radio is your basic AC/DC radio of that era using the All American Five tube set which is the 12SA7, 12SK7, 12SQ7, 35Z5 and the 50L6. It will be easy to refinish this cabinet since there are no decals on it.

Teletone I think this is the Tele-tone Model 111 of 1948, but I am not 100% sure. Tele-tone was based out of New York and made a number of plastic sets too. This radio is also an AC/DC radio using the All American Five tube set which is the 12SA7, 12SK7, 12SQ7, 35Z5 and the 50L6.

Philco 40-120C This is the Philco 40-120 Table Model of 1940. The two features in this radio was the introduction of loctal tubes and a built in antenna. With such features, Philco even put a handle on it to make you think you could take it anywhere, (anywhere with AC/DC power that is!) It has 2 bands: 540 to 1600 kc and 1.6 to 3.3 mc. It has 6 loctal tubes which are 7A8, 7B7, 7C6, 7C7, 35A5 and 35Z3.
