Notes NEC started radio business after the war. (They manufactured radio in 1920's and faded out.) Model RG-101A was the hi-end model of NEC radios. NEC used pick-ups and phono-motors made by Matsushita. Tubes 6L7G (In Japan called Ut-6L7G) and 76 were used as converter and local oscillator. This was a typical circuit of Japanese all wave radios at this era. The quality of Japanese 6A7 was poor to use for short wave receiving. Radio phonographs were too expensive for ordinary people. A few rich people bought such sets and they are now ultra rare. This model was presented to the royal family in 1948.
