    Given to me by a friend. The cabinet has been cleaned and polished but is otherwise unrestored. The chassis received all new tubes, new capacitors and resistors. Anyone familiar with this vintage chassis knows that restoring the huge can capacitors and philco's bakelite capacitors is a task. Particularly since this was my first Philco of this vintage. After much work, it plays like new.

    I have an interesting "slinky" antenna stretched across my attic. This old radio needs a good antenna. I had been operating on just a 10 foot piece of wire stetched across the workshop. Well...it really came to life whenI hooked it up to the "slinky". Amazing.

    It's big, it's heavy, it's old but it really works great. Fun listening to our local oldies station (KZQZ 1430).
