No question about it the big season of radio events is underway. Reports of meets and auctions abound in ourfiles, and we try to get them out there as soon as possible for all of you to savor
But once in awhile, an event stands out as something unique, or at least extra special, and we must give it precedence. The Breed Collection auction reported in this issue strucl< me as one such event for many reasons. First, it is the largest private collection up for auction in my recent memory; second, its proceeds will go to a good cause -- scholarships at two educational institutions; and third, its owners, Arie and Catherine Breed, are still enjoying an active life and can participate in the recipients' pleasure in their generosity.
In addition, this remarkable auction seemed to contain something for nearly everyone breadboards, rare horns, novelty sets, Catalins, etc. In our report, you will note one very special category
over 100 Zenith radios, including consoles, chairside, tombstones, and cathedrals, with one splendid Zenith Louis XV Model 15U273 selling for over $4,000.
Small wonderthat so many at the Elgin, Illinois, Radiofest asked me when the Breed auction would be reported in A . R . C . Obviously this is an event everyone wants to know more about, and so we have done our best to give you the full flavor of a memorable day for the collectors lucky enough to have been there.
We also report on the smaller Boccelli auction in nearby Watertown, Mass. The A.R.C. "radio boys," Dick Desjarlais and Ray Bintliff, remind us not to forget to check out the estate auction ads because that's where they found 100 or more radios on the block. Unfortunately, many others read the same ad. Still, as we all know, such is the up-and-down life of a "radiophile."
On the up-side is Ted Depto's significant auction find a Modernola Delano Sheraton which also resulted in an article for A . R . C . readers. After successfully purchasing the Delano Sheraton 5-tube set, Ted researched the Modernola Company and even found that the factory building w a s still standing. An old newspaper ad for the set was a nice find too. He shares his research with us this month.
We're always glad to have Ian Sanders back with another British crystal set article this time, on the Fuller Sparta crystal set. Among the unusual features of this set were the availability of three colors, a s well a s long wave coils and a 1 tube amplifier
For AC set collectors, Richard Arnold describes the General Electric Model S-22, 8-tube, tombstone radio, ca. 1930s. This early G E set was manufactured when RCA was marketing G E sets.
Arvin "Rhythm" sets seem to have caught the

A . R . C . readers' fancy. After a letter in our June issue on the Rhythm Belle, a follow-up letter appears this month. And Ted Depto sent in a short piece on the Rhythm Maid, which we include as well.
Photo Review shows a surprise Hallicrafters set not a "boat anchor" communications receiver but a sleek plastic table model with 2 bands. A rare Kodel 2-tube portable set and a radio card game are also shown.
Daniel Schoo presents another of his detailed repair articles testing and replacing selenium rectifiers. From 1938 to the late 1960s, these plate-type rectifiers were used in radios. However today, they are very expensive when they have to be replaced. A sidebar by Blake Dietze adds to Schoo's discussion of the replacement of the selenium rectifier with the less expensive and easier-to-find silicon rectifier
Radio Miscellanea is doing its job when it contains feedback on earlier articles, a s well as an exchange of ideas about how to make sales transactions better with clearer information and common courtesy. Alton DuBois has built Gary Strelow's tube substitutes (A.R.C. February 1996), while Dave Gonshor opens a discussion about whether a set is priced with or without tubes. We're also glad to report that services advertised in A.R.C. are successful and that the pleasures of radio collecting are as far-reaching as Japan.
Coming Radio Events, With the Elgin, Illinois Radiofest '97 just past (we will report on this very successful meet in a future issue), collectors are looking forward to the September 5-day, Antique Wireless Association Conference in Rochester, New York. Over 1,000 are expected to attend this event which includes the requisite flea market, plus seminars, banquets, museum visits, equipment contest, and 4 auctions. This is a show not to be missed.
And October brings the 3-day, Dallas area Vintage Radio and Phonograph Society Convention '97 A.R.C. will be at both of these events, so I hope that you will look us up and say, "Hi." Of course, there are dozens of other late summer and fall events all across the country. Since something is near everyone, there is almost no excuse not to get out and meet with your fellow collectors!
Happy Collecting! John V Terrey, Editor
Our cover features a Scott Philharmonic 30-tube receiver in a Warrington console cabinet from the Arie and Catherine Breed Collection. This classic sold for $6,050 at the auction held by the Tom Harris Auction Co. in Pella, Iowa, on April 26. Many beautiful examples of radio cabinetry were in evidence at this event, which truly offered "the best of the best."



The Modernola Delano Sheraton
A Thoroughly Modern Modernola


Ted Depto's story of his unexpected find of a Delano Sheraton radio, ca. 1920s, in beautiful condition is a lesson to us all. Never dismiss the potential of a seemingly innocuous auction ad. You may find one of your greatest treasures. (Editor)

Just when you think all of the

good, early radios have been

located, an event comes along

to prove otherwise. Such was

my good fortune when I noticed

an auction ad in the local daily

paper Midway in a 7" advertise-

ment for a two-day auction, I

noticed the listing of a "Delano

Sheraton" battery radio. I thought

it was a misprint and really meant

"Deico or Detrola." However, I

decided to check it out anyway

since I previously had found a

Phiico 90 cathedral at an auc-

tion whose ad read simply, "A

Phiico table radio."

The auction was held on a

Friday and Saturday with the

radios, furniture and larger items

scheduled for Saturday. The lo-

cation in an upscale section of

Westmont Boro, a suburb of the

city of Johnstown, Pennsylva-

nia, was about 25 miles from my

home. Upon arriving in the early

morning with my chair and um- V

the other in a custom cabinet of Chippendale design. Also in this display were several unused Corbett radio cabinets.
Then I saw the Delano Sheraton sitting on a low table next to the fireplace in one of the larger rooms. Its doors were closed, and at first glance, it appeared to be only a fancy sewing cabinet or maybe a dinner utensil cabinet. Sure enough, It

I decided to bid whatever it would take to acquire this desirable radio. Since many people expressed interest in the radio now that the doors were open, I anticipated some serious competition. When the radio came up for bid, I started at half a hundred, and it went from there. Needless

to say, I was ecstatic to have bought the radio at a much better price than I had projected. My guess is that most of the auction attendees who showed an interest in the Modernola did so out of curiosity and because it was displayed with other quality items. These people, however did not grasp the significance of this find.
According to my research (with the assistance of the Johnstown Public Library), the Modernola Company originally formed as a business venture to make phonographs and console talking machines. It was incorporated on April 29, 1874, with an initial capital stock of $10,000.
The principals of the company were H.M. Farr, Guy McCormick, and D.H. Wendell. It is uncertain where the company was first located perhaps on Stony Street; however the 1922 and 1923 Johnstown business directory, page 743, lists the location of the Modernola Company at 105 Station Street in the city's Ferndale section.
The building, a s shown in Figure 2, still stands. I could find no existing records showing the year the company began to build radio receiving sets or production figures.
It is unclear whether the Modernola Company failed due to the stock crash of 1929 and the Depression that followed or due to market pressures that closed the company. What is clear is that the company, noted for its round phonographs with a lamp and shade built in, made a novel departure from traditionally-designed phonographs of the day.
McMahon's Radio Collectors'Guide 1921-1932 lists the "Delano," the "Sheraton" and a "Caddy" as 1926 models. The Delano sold for $135, while the Caddy sold for $50, and the Delano Sheraton sold for $75. An advertisement from the Dec. 18, 1926, Johnstown Tribune shows four models in the Modernola line. My radio is identified as a Delano Sheraton A-1 Also shown are two highboy models the Delano B2 and Delano B3 and a table model the Delano Sheraton B2.
I am not certain whether any other Delano radios are still in existence, but I am certain that

this radio was produced in some quantity; perhaps other styles are yet to be found. Although I have collected radios for some time now, until this auction, I had never heard of a radio named "Delano."
A quality radio throughout, the Delano Sheraton is a 5-tube T R F , not unlike other radios of the period. The dimensions of the cabinet are 18" x 15" X 13y4" It boasts a built-in Utah horn, as shown in Figure 3.
The radio's tuning range is 500 kHz to 1400 kHz. Tuning is accomplished by two variable capacitors and a variocoupler Note the inverted vacuum tubes in the underside of the radio shown in Figure 4. The battery terminals are located at the rear apron of the chassis. Storage space is provided for all batteries except for the 6-volt storage battery.
The beautifully engraved front panel and the well balanced design make this radio one of my

greatly prized possessions. There is no serial number stamped on the chassis; however, there is a chalk mark inscribed in the bottom frame of the cabinet indicating that the radio number might be 00037
I can just imagine adjusting the selector on the Delano Sheraton in the 1920s and hearing the opera rebroadcast every Saturday evening at 8 over Station W H C B located in Johnstown. In its day, the Delano Sheraton was certainly "a thoroughly modern Modernola!"

Arvin Model 617B -- Rhythm Maid


The Arvin Model 617B tombstone radio, shown in Figure 1 was bought at an auction of the contents of an old country grocery store in Central Pennsylvania, which had closed long ago. The radio was discovered along with many radio-related items. Some were new and never sold, and others, I suppose, belonged to the store's owners for personal use.
The set's dimensions are a large 22y4" high x 16"

wide X 12" deep a pretty hefty radio in anyone's lexicon. It is a 6-tube, battery-operated radio, which was the mainstay for the rural community for news and entertainment before commercial electrical power came to the neighborhood. Manufactured by Noblitt-Sparks Industries Inc. in 1936, the set boasts a 7" airplane dial in four colors and covers the frequency range of 535 kilocycles through 18.5 megacycles in three bands. The set also has an 8" dynamic speaker and is relatively heavy for its cabinet size.
This particular radio carries a serial number of 102131 See Rider's Volume VII for more information.
When I began to restore the set, I found that the bandswitch was frozen on its shaft, so I applied a little heat plus some WD-40. The shaft freed itself, and now the switching mechanism clicks flawlessly. I cleaned the tone and volume controls and replaced about half of the paper capacitors along with the necessary new filter caps. I added Quietrole into the bearings of the tuning capacitor and minor touchup of the trimmers got the set working as well as new.
An/in was noted as much for its automobile heaters and defroster fans as for its radios. The 1936 line included such names as "Rhythm Baby," "Rhythm King," and "Rhythm Queen."

Eight 1936Arvin "Rhythm" radios maybe seen on page 58 of 'Flick of the Switch." Commentary on the "Rhythm Belle"and the "Rhythm Maid"may be found in the June A.R.C. "Radio Miscellanea," as well as in this issue. (Editor)



The General Electric Model S-22


According to the book Invention and Innovation in the Radio Industry, the General Electric Company did not begin to sell the radios it manufactured until 1935. Up to that time, the radios that G E made were marketed through R C A . One of these models was the G E S-22, shown in Figure 1, which was manufactured by G E in 1931-1932, and marketed by RCA during a period of negotiations with the Department of Justice.
These negotiations concerned an antitrust action brought in 1930 by the Department of Justice vs. RCA, G E , and Westinghouse. The defendants were said to have some 4,000 patents on radio apparatus that allowed them to dictate terms that were unfavorable to their competitors.
After 18 months of negotiations, G E and Westinghouse agreed to release certain interests in RCA. They also agreed to a time frame of 2V2 years during which they would not sell or make any radios, thereby allowing RCA to establish itself as an independent company. Given the fact that G E and RCA were virtually one and the same company in the early '30s, it is not surprising that the G E S-22 has the same chassis as the RCA R-7 and R-9. The R-7 is a 1931 table model, while the R-9 is a 1931 console. The DC-operated versions R-7DC and R-9DC correspond to the G E S-22A.
The G E S-22 te a large, unusually styled tombstone with a cabinet measuring 19'/2" x 14" x 10" The brass handle at the top is best used for decoration, as the radio is quite heavy. Lifting this set by

its handle could cause some structural damage. The speaker is covered with an embroidered
grille cloth having a basket/floral design, but without the protection of any wooden grille work. A colorful photo of the S-22 on a decorative stand appears in Bunis' The Collector's Guide to Antique Radios, 2nd Edition, on page 91
The deep chassis of this 8-tube superhet, as with other early G E sets, has a wraparound metal enclosure over the sides and bottom to protect the components from the elements and possibly to act as a shielding unit. The tube types include the following: 35 (2), 27 (2), 24 (1), 45 (2), and 80 (1).
The three wooden knobs are for volume control, station selection, and tone control. The on/off switch is located on the upper right-hand side of the cabinet. In Figure 2, note the convenient access to the RF, the detector and oscillator trimmers on the bottom of the set, and the IF trimmers on the rear face of the chassis. This is a very well built radio and a good addition to your collection of 1930s radios.

Richard Arnold has been collecting radios since 1985. His interest is primarily in cathedrals and 1920s battery sets, and his collection ranges from crystal sets to a 1928 American Bosch in a Pooley cabinet. His prize is the 1932 Jackson Bell Peter Pan featured in the June 1991 A.R.C.


The Fuller Sparta Crystal Set
"Fuller Sparta Radio Apparatus covers a complete range of up-to-date accessories, mechanically and electrically perfect. ..You can rely on it." (Advertisement appearing in "Amateur Wireless" magazine, October 1924)
The "Sparta" trademark was used extensively by Fuller's United Electric Works, Limited, of E s sex, England, for its range of receivers, kits, loudspeakers, batteries and components offered during the early to mid-1920s. Like many companies of the period. Fuller's produced a single crystal set design. The Sparta set however produced in July 1924, is of particular interest because of its

plifier was also offered.



tors are unusual in that the aerial socket accepts a plug which can be connected directly to the removable socket of the earth terminal, intended as a safety feature for protection against lightning. Two earth sockets were provided: one (S) for use when the antenna was between 30-50 feet in length, and another (L) for antenna lengths between 50-100 feet.
The wavelength range is the standard 300-500

The Sparta crystal receiver is shown in Figures 1 and 2. It was constructed in a compact wooden case with a lid, measuring 6'/? x A% x 3 inches. Finished in imitation morocco leather with the Sparta trademark imprinted on the lid, the set was available in at least three colors black, brown and gray. The ebonite control panel and the removable loading coil were also colored to match the case. Black, however is the most common color to be found today and, therefore, was probably produced in the greatest numbers. All of the fittings are heavily nickel-plated and are of extremely high quality.
The aerial and earth oonnec-

meters, but could be extended to cover the BBC's 1600 meter long-wave station by means of an atypically small plug-in coil; see Figure 3. Measuring just 1% inches in diameter the coil pins are made of heavy-gauge wire instead of the common split-pin and socket arrangement. The coil replaced a removable shorting link (also made of heavy-gauge wire) located at the top left of the panel; see Figure 4.
Although the detector is the standard catwhisker/galena type, it has a novel design, as shown in Figure 5. The swivel arrangement is doublepivoted at the rear of the detector arm, rather more in continental European style than in the contemporary British style of crystal detectors. The crystal itself is held in place by a springloaded plunger, and the unit is fitted with a retractable cup cover
Another unusual feature is that the control panel is sealed in the case. All Sparta products carried a oneyear warranty, but the manufacturer warned that"... no responsibility for defects will be taken if the seals are broken."
In 1924, the Sparta crystal set sold for one pound, one shilling (£1.05) an amount known at that time as one guinea. Hence, the Sparta was often advertised as the "guinea Crystal Set." The long-wave coil was an additional three shillings and six pence (£0.175).

dull-emittertype, requiring only 0.06Aforthe filament. Even so, it was probably not a good idea to operate the unit with the lid closed.
There is no control panel, and because of space limitations, the input/output and battery terminals are located around the sides of the c a s e . T h e only adjustment is a filament rheostat. All of the fittings are nickel-plated to match the crystal set.
The amplifier sold for three pounds, three shillings (£3.15), less valve and batteries, and was also subject to a Marconi royalty.

Ian Sanders has been collecting and restoring early 1920s crystal and battery receivers since 1974. He specializes in British sets of this period, and would be happy to try to answer any readers' inquiries on this subject.

The Sparta one-valve amplifier was a companion to the Sparta crystal set, and was built in a matching case; see Figure 6. The component layout is necessarily cramped given the size of the enclosure and would have generated considerable heat if operated with a "bright-emitter" type valve. For this reason it was designed for use with a low-current

PARKER BROTHERS RADIO GAME -- This radio game, copyright 1923 by Parker Brothers, uses 56 cards with station call letters and plays similar to rummy. (Don Howland - Spokane, WA)

H A L L I C R A F T E R S MODEL 621 - This 6-tube, 2-band plastic receiver c a . 1955, is goodlooking enough for any room in the house. Its dimensions are 8" x 13%" x 7" A Model 612, cosmetically and electronically similar to the 621 exists but possibly with different colors. Does anyone know what those colors are? (Bob Perry - Painted Post, NY)

EMERSON MODEL AX212 - This tiny 5-tube superhetrodyne w a s made in either maple or walnut finish. The cabinet is distinguished by the large wooden "bullseye" over the speaker The chassis is similar to many small Emerson Catalins. (Donald M. Maurer - Lebanon, PA)
CLAPP-EASTHAM MODEL HR - While the original owner might have grafted the Atwater Kent 2-step amplifier onto his Clapp-Eastham HR, department stores were known to have sold similar combinations in order to dispose of outdated stock. I could easily restore the HR, but it tells a much better story this way. (Alan S. Douglas - Pocasset, MA)

SILVERTONE UNKNOWN - This remarkably well-preserved A C set w a s unearthed at a North Carolina antique shop in June 1996. Resembling a 1930s era console with the bottom sawed off (actually, the speaker is built-in to the top), it's a strong performer on both the AM (550-1700 kHz) and shortwave (2.5-7 MHz) bands, yet uses only 5 tubes (Types 42, 75, 80, 6D6, and 6A7). The bottom of the wooden case is stamped "MAR 24, 1936." The same set is pictured in Evolution of the Radio, Volume 2, and is similarly identified. Can anyone tell me the model number and year of production? {Douglas D. Fox - St. Charles, IL)



This rare set,

purchased in a Vienna flea market in 1994,

carries a round white label below the lid clasp

which reads: "Arnold Lederer Prague." (Erwin

Macho Vienna, Austria)


KODEL MODEL P2 - This leatherette portable radio, c a . 1925, uses two Type 199 tubes. There is room inside the case for the A and B batteries, a s well a s the headphones. (Wally Worth - Wollaston, MA)

C R O S L E Y MODEL 61 - This 5-tube, 1934 tombstone has two bands broadcast and shortwave. Except for the filter condensers and the P.M. replacement speakers, all components are original or direct substitutes. (Anton George - Kenosha, Wl)

Thanks from the Breeds
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended our radio auction on April 26, 1997 It was a truly memorable day for Catherine and me, and it enabled us to see many old friends and meet many new people. We sincerely hope that those who purchased radios will enjoy them as much as we have.
This auction will enable us to meet and perhaps exceed our goal of providing a named scholarship at Central College, Pella, Iowa, and Iowa State, Ames, Iowa. Again, thanks to all who attended.
Sincerely, Arie and Catherine Breed The Breeds are to be commended for their foresight in planning for the future of their collection. In addition to knowing that their treasures are in willing hands, they are also able to enjoy the pleasure ofgiving scholarships to grateful sudents in the years to come. (Editor)

Sharon Boccelli and Company Auction
June 4, 1997 -- Watertown, Massachusetts

The auction notice read: "Sharon Boccelli and Company presents an Auction of the Contents of Several Area Estates." Such a heading would stir the juices of any radiophile, but what made this auction a must was this following announcement: "An extensive single collection of radios to be sold at 5 P.M."
Armed with the radio auction listing, we trotted down to the Hibernian Hall in Watertown, Massachusetts, on June 4, 1997 to take part in the action. We knew in advance that all of the radios were to be auctioned off before the main auction at 6 P.M. This was to our advantage, of course, but the crowd waiting for the main event made it difficult to hear the auctioneer and to concentrate on what was happening.
Approximately 120 radios, plus 5 cone speakers, were auctioned off in just under an hour as auctioneer Sharon Boccelli proceeded at a brisk but professional pace. In several instances, radios were sold in lots ranging from 2 to 10 radios in one lot. This speeded up the auction, but it also meant that if a bidder was interested in just one radio in the lot, he or she had to bid on the entire lot. This practice, although common enough, did not appeal to some of the 35 or so radio-active bidders present, who had interest in only one item in a lot. Admittedly, selling each of the auction items singly would have taken longer but it might have resulted in more bidders spending more money. The radio auction took in $5,550.
The highlights of the auction included an E merson "Strad" table radio selling at $330, an R C A Radiola V at $350, a Phiico Model 70 chairside at $90, a Federal Orthosonic Type H at $105, and a Browning Drake 6A at $120. A 1 0 percent buyer's premium was charged, but is not included in the auction price listing.

Radios and home entertainment electronics must h a v e direct current to operate. Since the power available in your h o u s e is alternating current, s o m e m e a n s must be employed to convert the alternating current into direct current to operate the circuits in the radio. T h e most common w a y of doing this is through the u s e of a device called a rectifier
T h e r e are m a n y types of rectifiers, but they all do the s a m e thing. T h e y convert A C to D C by allowing current to p a s s through in one direction with a low resistance and not letting the current p a s s in the opposite direction. T h i s property is called asymmetric conduction. When the alternating current from a household wall receptacle, which switches from positive to negative and back again 6 0 times a s e c o n d , is connected to a rectifier the rectifier allows the current to flow only when the polarity is the correct value to operate the radio. T h e rectifier stops the current when the polarity is not the correct value.
Many types of rectifiers h a v e been developed for power conversion. For many years vacuum tubes were most often used to perform this function in radios. T o d a y the silicon diode is the dominant type of rectifier
O n e of the earliest solid-state metallic rectifiers used to convert alternating current into direct current for power is the selenium cell. In 1877 Werner Siemens studied selenium cells and discovered their ability to rectify. In 1883, C . T Fritts w a s experimenting with the photoelectric sensitivity of selenium cells, but also noted their ability to conduct current much better in one direction than in the other. His design of a selenium cell w a s , in many w a y s , similar to the construction of modern selenium rectifiers. His interest in this property of a s y m metric conduction prompted him to write that some d a y it might b e useful in converting "to a n d fro currents into uni-directional current."
T h e first practical application of s e l e n i u m c e l l s a s a rectifier w e r e reported by Pochettino in 1909. Even though a practical rectifier w a s demonstrated using selenium, for m a n y y e a r s much of the interest in selenium cells w a s focused more on their photoelectric characteristics. T h e first commercial selenium rectifiers w e r e made in 1924. In

1928, improved v e r s i o n s w e r e available in G e r many. T h e y w e r e not marketed in the United States until the Federal Telephone and Radio C o m p a n y introduced them in 1938. In 1 9 4 6 , F e d eral marketed a selenium rectifier stack designed for use in radio a n d television r e c e i v e r s . S e l e n i ums became a popular device and were used extensively in home entertainment equipment until the decline of the v a c u u m tube in the late 1960s.
When transistors replaced tubes on a large scale, silicon rectifiers replaced seleniums bec a u s e of their smaller size, better performance and much better reliability. Selenium rectifiers continue to be manufactured a s replacement c o m ponents for older industrial equipment. In the mid-1960s, a small replacement rectifier for a table radio would cost about 75 cents. B e c a u s e of the s m a l l volume of s a l e s , newly m a n u f a c t u r e d rectifiers of this s i z e n o w cost about thirty dollars.
T h e physical construction of a selenium rectifier is relatively simple. Various manufacturers have slightly different methods, but the general manufacturing process is the same. A slightly roughened b a s e plate, usually of aluminum but s o m e times s t e e l , is c o a t e d with a thin film of pure s e l e n i u m to w h i c h a s m a l l a m o u n t of a halogenlike chlorine or bromine h a s been added. This plate will become the anode of the cell.
Heat treating the b a s e c a u s e s the selenium to convert into the metallic crystalline state. A barrier layer is then formed over the selenium film by oxidation or the application of a special coating. T h e final layer is formed by applying a coating of cadmium or an alloy of tin, cadmium or bismuth over the barrier layer This coating becomes the c a t h o d e , a n d the t e r m i n a l c o n n e c t e d to it is u s u ally marked with a red dot or + sign.
In o r d e r for the c e l l to w o r k properly, it m u s t b e formed much like an electrolytic capacitor to reduce the reverse leakage current. A voltage is applied to the cell in the reverse direction until the leakage current drops down below an acceptable level. This c a n take from one hour to more than 24 hours, depending on the construction and application.
After construction and forming, the cells are a s s e m b l e d into stacks. T h e smaller very low current ones are assembled simply by stacking one on another the larger ones use spacers and connection terminals. T h e final stacked assembly is covered with a protective coating of paint or varnish to prevent moisture a n d contamination from interacting with the layers and causing dam-

More on the Selenium Rectifier

B Y B L A K E M. D I B T Z E

Since selenium rectifiers are no longer readily available, the radio restorer must use a viable alternative. The replacement of a s e l e n i u m rectifier is usually achieved by substituting the selenium stack with a single silicon diode. The wiring diagram for a s e l e n i u m rectifier is s h o w n in Figure 1, and its equivalent circuit consisting of a diode and resistor is shown in the center of Figure 2.
D u e to the nature of the simple power supplies in which seleniums were used, the silicon diode substitute should have a Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV) rating of at least 500 volts and a forward current carrying capability of 1 amp or better. My choice is the 1N4005 (600V PIV @1 amp) which is available at most electronic stores for less than a dollar. [The 2-ohm resistor i s added to approximate the internal resistance of the selenium rectifier.] T h e strip mounting method s h o w n at the bottom of Figure 3 is a clean and simple way to replace the failed s e l e n i u m rectifier. It i s not a good idea to bridge the new diode across the failed selenium, although I have seen many replacements performed this way.
One final note in closing; something probably c a u s e d the s e l e n i u m rectifier to fail. L o o k tor shorts in the power supply, notably the filter capacitors, and don't forget the safety rules that apply to working on power supplies, especially the A C / D C t j ^ e c h a s s i s w h e r e s e l e n i u m s are often found.

T h e functions are on/off, volume, tone, band, and tuning. A collector friend has a 1939 Fada 913, which is a huge 13-tube tombstone with six knobs on the front panel. Two of these are dummy knobs.

Prices With or Without Tubes
Dear Editor: Convention s e e m s to be that battery sets from the 1920s are priced without tubes. However, price guides such a s IVIarty and S u e Bunis' guide imply that the listed prices are for complete radios, including tubes. This can make a huge difference. For example, a Western Electric 7A amplifier lists for up to $500. T h i s amplifier uses three tennis ball-type Western Electric 216A tubes, which might run $100 each if functional. S o , the tubes alone are worth around half the listed price of the item! It s e e m s a s if spokesmen for the hobby, such as Antique Radio Classified, could do the hobby a sen/ice by helping to establish a consistent convention on this subject.

Although establishing a consistent convention regarding tubes in battery sets is a good Idea, insuring that over 8,000 readers follow it is next to impossible. Our suggestion is to verify always with the seller whether or not tubes are Included, and whether they are good tubes or duds, before agreeing to a purchase.
Of course, all of the other issuesof mail-order buying should be clarified as well, such as set condition, operating status, who pays for packing, shipping and insurance, how the item will be packed, payment policy and refund/return policy Since these are usually discussed in a telephone call, make sure to restate In writing your understanding of the terms of the purchase when sending your payment (Editor)
Envies U.S. Radio Activities
Dear Editor Once again, I tell you how much I have enjoyed Antique Radio Classified. There are no such man/elous societies of classic radio lovers like yours in J a p a n . I am envious of your activities. I have twenty sets of classic radios with tubes, and repairing them is consuming my spare time. When I have the chance to visit the U. S . , I would like to find some of the shops that appear in your books and attend the meetings of some of the clubs. A. Mizote, Nara City, Japan
We're sure Mr Mizote will have an open invitation to all our radio activities when he visits the U. S. (Editor)

Strelow Tube Substitutes Work
Dear Editor: I finally built six of Gary Strelow's "tube substitutes that glow" a s described in the February 1996 A . R . C . and installed them in my Atwater Kent Model 33. It works beautifully. With the scarcity and high price of 01-A tubes and power supplies, Strelow's substitutes are a great innovation, making operation of these radio gems feasible. All the parts I used came from Radio Shack. The only change I made was to eliminate the lamp socket and solder directly to the lamp. I showed the result to the Radio Shack manager, and he was excited about it. Of course, we had to rig an antenna because he had none in his shop. Alton A. DuBois, Queensbury, NY
In the Marketplace

Tubedata retails for $39.95 and is supplied on a S'/z" diskette for IBM compatible computers. Check with A . R . C . and other dealers forthis Sonoran product.
Common Courtesy-
Dear Editor:
Maybe you could mention something about people calling asking you to hold an item and then not following through. Thanks.
Michael Grain, Han/eys Lake, PA The other side of this coin Is people agreeing to sell you an item and then reneging on the deaf In both cases. If common courtesy prevailed, collecting would be even more enjoyable. (Editor)
Good Services in A.R.C.
Dear Editor: I just wanted to let you and your other subscribers know that I purchased some test equipment from Boca Electro Magnetic Labs, one of your advertisers. The equipment, sen/ice, and price were all excellent. I also did some business with Wendell Hall through your classfieds. His calibration on my Hickok tube tester w a s excellent and his information very helpful. I would recommend both of these businesses to any subscriber who wants honest sen/ice and fair prices. I am a new subscriber and want you to know that I enjoy your magazine. Mike Piskunoff, Olmsted, OH

Attention Jttiou) Microfhom Cotkctors and "Enthusiasts:
We are pleased to announce that we are assembling a book on microphones. T h e object of this book will be to encompass, not only pictures and data on the microphones themselves, but the stories, experiences, applications and memories of those involved in all facts of using microphones; from the beginning to the present from normal applications to the most bizarre. We wish to include all types of microphones, from the simplest and cheapest, to the most sophisticated and expensive. Anything that has to do with the art and application of microphones.
I f you have a spot in your heart for microphones and wish to submit pictures, stories, etc., anything that you think would be interesting to share with fellow enthusiasts, please don't hesitate to e-mail, fax, or mail your interests. F u l l credit w i l l be given to everyone involved.
Kindest regards and thanks for your attention and support.

A R E F E R E N C E FOR USERS AND C O L L E C T O R S By Ludwell Sibley
For serious tube enthusiasts, a new look into tubes from 1920 to the present: history of design trends, technical data, equivalencies, stocking-up hints, "where-used" information, even recent auction prices. Here's what it contains:
Trends in Tube Design: major styles that shaped the industry acorns, metals, loktals, miniatures and subminis, lighthouse, nuvistors, compactrons. Odd design variants and special "reliable" types.
Receiving and Audio Types: "prehistoric" types from 25 tiny manufacturers as well as the big guys. Information on a lot of collectible tubes in one place. Basic data on lots of later types not found in ordinary tube handbooks, and early CRTs.
Special-Purpose and Transmitting Tubes: covers the familiar ones and lots of unknown types. "Regular" tubes, plus magnetrons, klystrons, thyratrons, ignitrons, camera tubes, etc. Capsulized characteristics on 2300 "specials" from 5512 to, ^ 1 9 . Helps identify that just-found "whatzit.
Military Types: a researched lisi of Signal Corps " V T ' tubes; historic Navy types; coverage of Canadian " R E L " tubes.
Unique Tubes from major makers: De Forest, Eimac, G E , Raytheon, R C A , Sylvania, Westinghouse. A 13-page chapter on Western Electric!
User's Guide: ideas on testing, adapting, repairing, reactivating, reading date codes, detecting the real maker of privatebrand tubes, turning random bagfuls into usable repair stock.
TV Sweep Types: what lubes arc used in eight audio amps and 78 amateur transmittcrs/linears; hints on substituting as the originals get scarcer and more expensive.
Auction Prices: for collectible and audio tubes, from six major tube-rich sales. ^oftbound, 186 pages, S-Vi'xU", $19.95 postpaid in North America or $24.95 air-PPD elsewhere. Orderable from:
