Detrola 109 (1935)


Detrola 109 (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The model 109 is possibly the rarest Detrola radio I've ever seen. It was on a shelf at a friend's house in Seattle, and the dial immediately caught my eye. I talked him into selling it to me and when I got it home I started to research it, only I could find very little information on it. The Radio Museum had a listing with a schematic but no picture. The dial is unique as I couldn't find it on any other model. The SB scale extends into the lower SW band, basically the police/aviation which no longer functions. This is a five-tube, AC/DC, extended scale dial (SB,Police) set. The dial has the red network (NBC) and the blue Columbia broadcasting network bands. We replaced all of the capacitors and checked and replaced tubes and resistors where needed. We installed a new power cord and audio cable. The cabinet had been refinished by a previous owner and received Gary's approval for a job well done. This rare radio can be yours! I have donated the pictures to the Radio Museum, there to remain forever as the only pictures of a Detrola 109! 16"W x 9-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.
