Hello everybody.

Has anybody ever seen this radio?

I don't know the manufacturer nor the model.

Probably it is belgian, it is equiped with these tubes: ECH41; EF41; EBC41; 6V6GT; 80; 6E5.

Knobs and supply transformer aren't original.

I don't have the rear.

Thanks for attention.

Valentino Tancredi

Thanks.

I guess it is not french because

"Emetteurs

Locaux

Belges

Lokale

Zenders"

is written on the tuning dial.

Is it a french product for Belgium or a belgian one?

Hello Valentino,

“Emetteurs Locaux Belges - Lokale Zenders" is probably a hint for a Belgian origin. 

A detailed picture of the scale with legible inscription would be of great advantage for further idendification.

ACEC ? 

Hello Valentino,

this radio has some resemlance with models of the company ACEC, Atelier de Construction Electrique de Charleroi, see their model 530 for example.

It seems to be a peculiarity of ACEC to use adapting washers to match Rimlock tubes into a chassis punched for octal tubes.
On the other hand, the round IF cans on ACEC radios are different to the square IF cans in your radio.

hello Jacob,

with J. Francois Bertrand's help (http://www.radiomuseum.org/forum/radio_inconnue.html) I can say that this radio is made in Belgium, even if most of components come from other countries.

Maybe it was assembled by ACEC a few times after world war 2 end, with makeshift components.

It works perfectly, that's the most important thing!

Anyway, thanks for your suggestions.

Best regards

Valentino
