  • Notes
  • The design of 6N-1 and 9N-4 broadcast receivers was a team effort of RCA engineers of Camden, NJ, and Soviet visitors to the USA in 1936-37. The prototype for 6N-1 was RCA 6T2 desktop model of 1936. Production of 6N-1 started in 1938 at "Elektrosignal" Radio Works in Voronezh, USSR, first as screw driving assembly of components supplied by RCA. Mass production of 6N-1 became possible after American equipment was started in the USSR for metal vacuum tubes, composition resistors and mica capacitors. Despite relatively short production period (early 1938 till June, 1941), the total amount of 6N-1 receivers exceeded 150,000 pieces. Russian spelling of 6N-1 is "6H-1".

habe gestern auf der AREB dieses Radio 2x gesehen.

Es war bei keinem die Rückwand dabei. Dafür sagten mehrere Leute, das dieses Gerät keine

Rückwand gehabt habe. Kann das sein ?

Zumindest ist auch kein Bild der Rückwand im Radiomuseum vorhanden.

Viele Grüße
