I guess the ball is now delivered back into Most Honnable Atsushi’s court. . . . .for its confirmation.
Sir Peter. . . . .Those are some DEE-licious colors of radios, but in researching the 54L chassis reveals there being nary a
transistor in the mix.
Those units are utilizing :
A 1V6 “Pencil tube” for the mixer
A 1AH4 “Pencil tube” for the I.F. amplifier
A 1AJ5 “Pencil tube” for the Det-AVC-1st AF amp
A n n n n n d a BIG ‘ole 3S4 for the Audio output. . . . . .300 MILLIWATTS !! . . . . .babycakes.
Battery operation via a 67.5 V “B battery” and 3V “ A battery”
AC operation via Selenium Rectum-fire and dropping resistors, no exoticas being involved.
