  • Notes
  • Portable valve radio powered by dry batteries with built-in frame aerial. Same as the Brunswick 43D model apart from cabinet finish. Similar to the Decca MLD/5 and Brunswick 42D models which have different cabinets and batteries. Some MLD/3 examples have Mazda valves (FC141, SP141, H141D and Pen141), otherwise Tungsram or Brimar brand valves (1A7G, 1N5G, 1H5G and 1C5G).

    In 1939  1A7G  1N5G 1H5G 1C5G are fitted only to the MLD/5, later production will use the US types due to Wartime shortages.
