I have discovered that the circuit/schematic is available from -


This is a French site (in French only), and as far as I understand
is available with many others on CD/ROM's as "Retro Schemas
1,2,3,4,5." however, I think individual schematics may be available
but you would need to email them to clarify this.
Perhaps a French speaking member could help further?

As far as I know the light Skala with dark letters is French, the negative version is from Sweden. regards, Aad

Die auf dem Chassis befindliche Endröhre (unten links) kann nicht die ABL1 sein: Gitterkappe fehlt !

Liebe Sammlerfreunde,
ich besitze das abgebildete Radio. Jedoch nach dem Typenschild auf der Rückwand, kann nur original sein, steht als Type "4-39A", Serien- Nr. 10584. Sonst ist alles identisch dem 215A, so wie ich sehe.
Ich vermute, daß es eine holländische Fertigung des deutschen 215A ist.
