Take a look at the new Cape Old Radio site
This is my radio
collection on the internet. There is a page for each radio set. The page
has a picture of the set, its general description, detailed technical information, and a picture of tubes and IF transformers location. Each tube type has a link to a page with info about base, filament and plate volts, type of tube, and use in circuit, [Tubes] and [Base].
Info about dial [Lamps] is also available. Schematics of most of the sets are available to download.
Check out a page about power resistor, line-cord resistor, and ballast tube resistor
I started collecting antique radios in April 1996. How did I get started as a collector? First, my wife Flavia gave me as a birthday gift a really neat Zenith console, model 6-S-254, year 1937, with that amazing round black dial, and the whole set in perfect cosmetic condition. I said to myself, I'll get this radio back to its working life. Then, I did a WWW net search to find out if somebody else in this world would care about old radios. Surprise!!! Hundreds of sites, news groups, magazines, books, etc. After a few contacts, some reading, and a few more radio sets I got hooked. By now I've decided to collect and to restore small sets from 1920 up to 1960. It is really rewarding to get an old set back to life.
