Radio is in beautiful and playing condition
The Philips tube radio from 1953/54 is of the type BX330A and belongs to my personal collection. The radio is made of undamaged bakelite, the front is provided with a beautiful golden colour with white stripes. The station scale is made of glass and is illuminated from the side by means of a station scale light. The station scale is not scratched and the stations are undamaged and can be read well. The radio has three wavebands, Short wave 18.2 - 5.94 MHz, Medium wave 1613 - 524 KHz and Long wave 260 - 150 KHz and plays on all three wavebands. The radio has four buttons on the front. There is a power switch on the left as well as the volume control and tone control, the waveband switch and tuning knob are on the right.
The radio works on 220 volts but can also be set to other voltages via the back. There also is a connection on the back for an external speaker, gramophone connection and an antenna connection. I have not used the speaker and gramophone connections. The radio has a ferrite antenna built in, but I have connected a wire of 1 to 2 metres to the external antenna connection, which provides a better reception. The tube layout is ECH81, EBF80, EBC41, EL84 and EZ80. The scale lighting lamp is an 8045D-00 and the speaker is a 9768X. The dimensions of the radio are 375x274x176 mm and it weighs 6 kg.
The photos are part of the description of this beautiful radio, which has light signs of wear.
