Pye 18A

pye-18a-01This is a basic four valve superhet radio but, with an eight-inch speaker in the large cabinet, it sounds wonderful. The mains transformer is massive and more than capable of supplying the current needed. One thing that is interesting is the EBL31 audio output valve which also contains a double diode for detection and AGC. Quite an ingenious idea, I reckon.

Sorry, due to lack of spares, this is a model I no longer repair.
