    This model is related to Ténor Super-Six but with different tubes.

    There is one schematic with this model coming from P.H.Brans (ID=474609). This schematic contains multiple errors: (as well as the one from J.G.R. Van Dijck, probably copied from Brans or vice-versa)

    1. Oscillator triode defined as SP4 (tetrode) - must be 104V (Mullard).
    2. I.F. tetrode defined as 104D (triode) - must be SP4 (Mullard).
    3. Rectifier BV2X is non-existent - must be DW2X (Mullard).
    4. I.F. defined at 420 kHz - very unlikely in 1933 - must be 115 kHz.

    Schematic ID=1939586 has been updated with data from the booklet "Siera memento of tubes and models 1932-1946" verified with a real model in original condition.
