AtwaterKent 48

I am selling another radio from the collection of Edward Duda, Chief Design Engineer for Lafayette Electronics. He had a huge shop in his basement and made many custom radios and amplifiers. I was lucky to attend the auction of his estate and bought some nice stuff. The AK 48 I am offering here was completely rebuilt and restored by him. He added a solid state power supply that he fit into the case alongside the original chassis (this was originally a battery set). The insides of the radio are immaculate, The radio works but the volume is low (I had it going into a horn speaker for an authentic sound experience). There are 5 matching Hytron VT 67's (they are similar to a 30 tube) and a 31 output tube. The 2 front controls on the right (rheostats) are a bit sensitive to set because you are adjusting the RF and detector tube circuits. Also, he added a small pot that provides a fine control of the filament voltages inside the cabinet. The wood case is in great condition with the brass AK emblem on the outside and the serial number plate on the inside. The front is also beautiful. This radio has a great deal of provenance to anyone who collects vintage radios, or has memories of Lafayette Electronics. If you do a Google search of Edward Duda/Lafayette Electonics you can find pictures of his shop and some of his collection in the basement.
