An internal aerial is attached to the inside of the back cover and a large tuning knob provided for easy station selection. On the cabinet back sockets are provided for the connection of an external antenna and an extension loudspeaker. This receiver has undergone a complete restoration in our museum workshop and is now in full working order.
