RAP 846

This floor standing console radio was manufactured by RAP of London in 1946. It’s an up-market model with three short wave bands and an RF amplifier stage. It’s also a lovely looking piece of furniture. There’s an IF bandwidth switch, wide or narrow, which is as useful feature. An unusual feature of this radio is that one of the short wave bands is centered on 41.5 Mc/s – this is the old BBC VHF television sound channel. The dial is marked – Tele Sound. There’s something else which is extremely unusual… There’s a glass window at the back of the radio which is for viewing the glowing valves and the chromium-plated chassis. The RAP 846 is quite unique.
