General Electric H-640 (1939)


General Electric H-640 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Another model offered for the first time on Radio Attic! This six-tube GE is a strong player on AM Broadcast (plus two shortwave bands) with its built in loop antenna. The chassis was completely gone through with new capacitors, good tested tubes installed, new line cord, and the controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. The cabinet is big and bold, with an Art Deco flair and a striking wood inlay pattern, and the speaker situated at an upward angle for room filling sound. The finish is all original with some minor blemishes as to be expected after 83 years. It retains its original back cover! The cellulose plastic dial bezel was beyond repair and unobtanium today, so a new one was crafted from wood. There are push buttons that can be preset to your favorite stations, while the far right hand button needs to be depressed for manual tuning. It also features unique thumbwheel controls for volume and tuning, with knobs for off/on/tone, and one for the band selector. 19-1/2"W x 10-1/2"H x 10"D.
