Dear radio friends


I'm trying to recover an AT Wather model 137 Cathedral Cabinet style radio I came across a problem, the resistors have unusual codes, that is, some have two colors, others with one and the value of some for example R4 : .5 Ohm on the contrary and R15= .1 Ohm on the contrary, (Ω ), can any of your friends help to read the real value of these resistors, or if there is any common factor of multiple or divisible depending on what appears in the diagram?

Please see this schematic scrap I prepared


A big thank you in advance

From Portugal

Interesting set, my 137 has a later cathedral cabinet, only seen in the States on the battery model 386
