Notes This was probably the cheapest radio that could be bought in 1961; probably people used it in the kitchen or the bedroom. It is transformerless, and has a single-piece moulded cabinet and only four tubes. Components are mounted on a printed circuit board. An interesting technicality: tuning is inductive, that is, by varying the inductance of the coil in the tuning circuit.
