Notes

AWA produced a series of Bakelite Empire State radios between 1934 and 1938.

Radiolette models R28, R29,  R30, R31, R31A, R32, R37, R37A, R37B, R37C & Radiola  R48 &  R48G

Empire State was not the official AWA name for the classic Art Deco Bakelite Radiolette but due to their popularity among worldwide collectors they are now known colloquially as the AWA Radiolette, Empire State Series of radios.

Chassis:
5 valve, reflexed superhet with an IF of 175 kHz.
The tuning capacitor frame is insulated from the chassis.
A "local-distance" switch at the rear of the chassis is provided for reducing overload in strong signal areas.
The R28, R29 and R30 models have shielding box around the RF/IF valves.

The chassis was the same as the earlier Model 28, also used in the Console Radiolette 71 and the Bandmaster  455E

CAUTION! Asbestos is used as a heat shield to line one side of the can holding the two B+ capacitors.

Cabinet:
This Model R29 was  available in Black, Toned Ivory and Jade Green.

This Radiolette’s Art Deco Bakelite cabinet design was modelled on the wooden version AWA  Radiolette, Model 27 except with a square dial. Earlier Air King in the US designed models along these lines in 1933 with the Skyscraper 52.
