(wood tube cathedral radio)

Curtis Cathedral (1933)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This extremely rare cathedral was made by Radio Chassis Institute (RCI) in 1933. It has been wonderfully refinished with clear and toned lacquers, and new grille cloth. It is a six-tube superheterodyne; all tubes tested and in excellent condition. It has been electronically restored to like new condition with new modern equivalents of electrolytic and paper caps. All resistors were tested for proper values, and out of tolerance resistors were replaced with modern equivalents. It is most likely model AC-36 based on the schematic in Riders Volume 3, page 3-4 schematic for Radio Chassis. It requires a wire antenna for good reception, but of course an external antenna will work best. It is quite sensitive; strong stations may have to be de-tuned slightly as the volume control is not very effective for them, due to the circuit design (not a defect). This very attractive and quite rare radio would look great in any collection. 14"W x 17"H x 9 1/2"D, packed weight about 20 pounds.
