Herofon Petite AM-FM (1958)
Like this radio?   

Herofon Petite AM-FM (1958)
Ove Hede Nielsen began making radios in 1928 in a corner of his father's bicycle making plant. Annual productions of Herofon radios reached 10,000 units in 1939. In 1955, the Herofon name was changed to Arena and began simultaneously producing TVs. By 1960, Arena was the largest Danish producer of radios. Into the 1960s, Arena's development department created the component system, which led to faster repairs and the production of turntables and speakers. Arena's fortunes turned downward in 1970 when they suffered a devastating plant fire, the second of three, in the Hede Nielsen Factory's history. 12,000 radios, 4000 TVs, 20,000 speakers, and 1,000 turntables were lost in the blaze. Subsequently, Arena was sold to Rank Bush Murphy, from England, their business deteriorated, and employees ran the business with no success. In 1975, Scandinavia's most modern radio and TV factory closed, forever. Our model has four tubes, AM and two SW bands, one speaker, and a beautiful teak wood case. It plays well. Our restorer added one power transformer to aid in the 220VAC conversion, and replaced one UABC80 NOS tube, one UL84 NOS tube, one UF89 NOS tube, and one UCH81 NOS tube.  $800.00. (1300082)
