Wertes Forum,

worin unterscheidet sich der Freiburg Continental 410USE technisch vom Freiburg 14, Typenschild Continental und Rückwand sind eindeutig bezeichnet, aber der Rest? Welche Käuferschicht, sollte mit dem Modell 410USE angesprochen werden?

Vielen Dank für Hinweise

I am currently restoring one of these SABA Continental 410USE radios. It has not been used for many years and has been kept in a slightly damp place so its chassis is a bit rusty and all its switch contacts had tarnished. Having carefully cleaned the chassis, the set is now working again, even the motorised tuning works. However a couple of bulbs have failed, a dial lamp and a midget lamp under a key. These are not available here as very few SABAs were imported into the UK.  Does anyone know of a source of these in Germany please ?

Apart from the bulbs, the set won't turn off (a faulty switch on top of the transformer), the music/speech tone control doesn't work and the set lacks gain possibly due to deteriorated capacitors but in fact it has survived well and it's certainly an impressive radio set.
