Notes

Uses Ever Ready B136 Combined HT/LT battery, 90/1.5 volts, for over 250 hours use, which adds about 2kg to the stated weight.

"Later models the scale plate is separate." True on a March 1955 "Sky Queen".

Check which version before measurements!

Earliest versions use 470 Ohm rather than 560 Ohm bias and generally appear to be the same values & circuit as the final version of  Transportable T TC2A (see R&TVS schematic 1958 Edition Vol3 for Early Sky Queen). The Ever Ready manual shows a later version similar to Sky King. The otherwise similar Sky Prince uses a 3rd set of values.

There were three actual "Sky Queen" labelled Models

  1. 1953 "Sky Queen"(this Model) (DK96, DF96, DAF96, DL96). In 1954 the "Sky Prince" Farm Radio used a nearly identical chassis, Revised as 1956 "Sky King"
  2. 1959 "Sky Queen II" using a PCB and Modules (DK96, DF96, DAF96, DL96)
  3. 1964 "Sky Queen" using 7 transistors. 

Similar Chassis are Model K, Model T , Sky Prince (transformer moved to loudspeaker) and Sky King. There are references to a Sky Queen TK, this is listed in Trader Sheet 1098 (June 1953) as last version of Transportable T (a Transportable T S.Q.) essentially similar to early Sky Queen in the Model T case. The last use of the basic Chassis design was the Sky Lord Table Model.
