A while back I got a Westinghouse model 16 6 tube radio. While looking for information on it is came across a number of threads that suggested it was similar to the Radiola model 16 radio. While I had both radios out I thought I would add a short comparison to add to that information.

They are indeed very similar, the main differences are the size and the use of a 4 section tuner (Westinghouse) vs. a 3 section tuner (Radiola). The additional tuned section is on the front end and adds a tuned 1st RF with a small trimmer (the third knob on the Westinghouse version). I made a revised schematic and it is up on radiomuseum if you want to see the changes (look under Canadian Westinghouse, not Westinghouse).

Very interesting that they had tooling to produce a four gang capacitor.
Maybe they really needed the selectivity in Canada. Not as many stations around
that were close. Why would they not make a Radiola 17 or 18 version??
There was the Canadian Radiola 3 with three UX-199's as well.
