I have the BV526A, but parts of the dial cord mechanism are missing. Does anyone have diameter of the black drum the actual dial cord is on?

The radio uses a dual drive mechanism. The black drum (missing) fits on a smaller drum. The smaller drum has two contra widing cords that go around tuning shaft and then through a pair of "pipes" to the tuning capacitor drum.

The Gram and Bass knob parts of the Volume & Tone controls are missing. What do they look like and how do they relate to the main knob which in my case are identical with the Tuning and Wavechange.

What is the difference of BV series? Possibly made in Dublin.

The four bands on the scale are hard to read, nearly worn off.


1) Apparently 25M and 30M band spread, each is nearly 1/2 the scale

2) "41m  13m 16m 18m 20m" legends across the scale. The "41m" makes no sense)

3) "30m 40, 50m 60m 90m"?

4)  200m to 500m and 1600KHz to 600kHz

So "Broadcast /MW" and three Short Wave.  But a different appearance dial

I scanned with a black background to try and get the faint print


Appearance as Received

The Indicator and the extra volume control (as a replacement on/off only) are extras someone added. The dial didn't work, but tuning knob coupled to tuning drum direct (but not really working).



Michael Watterson

Careful cleaning and examination reveal the "41m" is of course "11m"

Peering at existing BX525A and BX525 and the front fascia suggests that two levers are missing.

There is no voltage selector on the BV526A, nor evidence that there ever was. Empty hole and no wiring.
