This is a Very large tombstone radio measuring 22 inches tall. It has the original grill cloth , but it is missing one original knob, which I happen to have. I have to replace the transformer, but there are not too many of these around, so it will get the full treatment,
chassis and cabinet.
   The face does not have a dial, but a Rotating disk that lights from behind to indicate the stations and bands. Since it is Canadian I will restore  it and keep it.

That sure will be a museum collectible. It looks like it has an RF stage as I see a third variable cap stage.
Wow 190 KHz to 22Mhz, full coverage.

Here's the schematic, Clic here for PDF Schematic

Mighty clean chassis.  That one will be a beauty with your efforts turned to it!

   I have it all done now and it does look very nice. I have not seen one of these radios before,
so I will keep it. it is very heavy.
