Manufactured by Ivory Radio this crystal set was widely advertised in radio magazines in the 1950’s aimed at the radio experimental enthusiast. Housed in a Bakelite moulded case this radio was able to tune on the medium waveband and with a good aerial and earth connected a few stations could be heard using headphones. No batteries or power connection was needed. Crystal sets originally developed in the early days of radio experienced a revival in the 1950’s mainly due to the development of the crystal germanium diode, which replaced the ‘cats whisker’ a notorious mechanically unstable detector used in the earlier sets.
Terminals on the rear of the set are provided for the Headphone, Aerial and Earth connections.
