  • Notes
  • See Early 88 with perhaps same chassis, but different case and scale.

    See Late 88 with definitely a different chassis and miniature valves. The cabinet is similar to the "late" version but has the logo and magic eye reversed. Magic Eye is on left corner of scale on this version.

    Note the station name Luxembg. at MW 208 m, the transmissions started in July 2nd 1951 at this frequency.

    Push-pull output stage "Magic Eye" tuning indicator. This set was probably not made by Barker who were only a retail outlet.
