Going Into the Unknown


Today we got a great new Philco radio and can’t wait to get started on it.  Sadly so far, despite our best efforts, we’ve been unable to find the model number. Please help us harness the power of the internet.  Someone out there will know exactly what it is, how to go about finding out, or a man that can and they may even have schematics.  One of the valves (or tubes) inside is marked USA and it looks thirties or forties but that folks, is all we know.

    Hi guys,

    I found the following website with lots of pictures of philco radios and yours seems to be from around 1937 or so.

    The Internet’s Leading Resource for Vintage Philco Radios.

    They should be able to assist you. Philco Radios were also made in the UK so yours might be one of those, Best of luck locating information on yours.

    Another site mentioned that model numbers were often on paper, perhaps that is the case with this unit.

      Thanks for that John. We’ll have to do some more research.
