  • Catalog is asking for identical Pilot tubes (sales promotion).
    5 pairs of interchangeable coils for band selection. Catalog and assembly description of wave ranges (14.5-27 m; 26-50 m; 50-100 m; 100-200 m; 200-500 m) are not in accordance with reality, see photos.
    This was sold as a kit only. The cabinet in the photo was later custom built (1985).
    The set can also be modified to use '99 tubes plus the '22. That requires an additional resistor and a separate power switch.
    The date 1927 comes from a Pilot ad.

Hi Everyone,

I have recently acquired a Pilot Wasp Radio and I cannot seem to identify which model it is exactly. I think it may be a combination of several models.

It operates from 240V AC and has a filter power supply using an 80 rectifier.

The Valve lineup is 39 36 76 41 80.

It also came with a box of plugin coils.

Any help will be greatly apreciated.

The pictures of the radio are attached.
