Does anyone know if this model came with a ferrite core antenna(built in), or only uses an external MW antenna?

 

The Gavotte 7, has a built in antenna.

Hello Omer.

A view to the inner Part of this Radio ( US Version)  and the part of the Diagramm, say. no, they have not a Ferritantenna.

Only long wire is províde.

Thank you Hans for the quick reply!

I suspected that this model  requires an external antenna, but was not sure, since other manufacturers with competative models of this vintage provided ferrite antennas.

I came to the conclusion, that the Gavotte 7, is probably the best model of this model series, being that it comes with internal MW and UKW(FM) antennas, bigger wooden case, uses an EL 84, and has a larger  speaker,  a long with two electrostatic speakers
