Notes

Philips Push-button All Transistor Portable, Model 198

Thrilling power and penny-wise economy from seven transistor and two diodes. Three push-button controls with hi-low tone selector buttons. Long range noise-free reception from high-gain "Ferroceptor" rod aerial. Slim, compact, lightweight (less than 5 lb. complete with battery), and dust-proof. Genuine leather case in three springtime colours: luggage tan, atmosphere grey, spring-fever red.

This model is the first local production Philips transistor radio marketed in Australia & physically resembles the valve based Skipper 196 of the same era.

Having the earlier OC44 and OC45s, these sets are more reliable than later radios with the OC169s and OC170s, the electrolytic and waxed paper capacitors, as with any 50(+) year old radio are suspect. The metalwork supporting the switch assembly differs considerably from models 199, 199A & 199C, which appear, at least, similar.
