Model 41-36 is a six transistor, two diode mantel receiver of printed wiring construction and is designed for Broadcast Band reception. The moulded plastic cabinet is fitted with a fold-away handle which enables the receiver to be used as a portable. The large circular 'Magnavision' dial scale caters for all Australian Broadcast stations. A socket is provided for the connection of a car radio aerial.

Inbuilt ferrite-rod with provision for external aerial and earth (terminals on rear of cabinet). To obtain the full benefit of an external aerial, an earth should also be connected. When using the receiver with a car aerial, ensure that the shielded cable is grounded on the car body. The total capacitance of the aerial and cable should not exceed 150 pf. If the receiver is to be used frequently in the car, it may be advisable to peak the aerial trimmer C3 with the car aerial connected. This will result in improved performance as a car radio but will lower the performance as a portable.

Battery Eveready 286 (9 volt) or equivalent. Type 276-P may also be used but with a shorter life expectancy. Access to the battery may be obtained by removing the external aerial and earth screws and detaching the cabinet back.

  • Speaker Rola Type 4CQ (4" 27Ω high-impedance).
  • Colour combinations available in Green/Ivory, Pink/Charcoal & Cinnamon/Ivory.
  • Car aerial to suit (optional extra for £3/3/-)
