Snazzy sets. I'm jealous.

So Dave, can the receiver pick up anything, in it's frequency rather than amplitude modulated 42 - 50 megacycle range?

Yes - it receives my homebrew, old-band FM transmitter. I've got quite a few radios with the old FM band so I decided to built a transmitter that emits a high quality signal in that band.

I have a prewar Brewster old-band tuner which was made by Meissner; it looks a lot like Dave's, but it has a power transformer. It came from an old movie theatre, where it must have been used for background music.

Your Brewster might be the same as a Meissner 1047-A which does use a standard power transformer/rectifier circuit. The isolation transformer mounted to the inside wall of the cabinet of my 1047 was, in fact, how the tuner was originally designed.

I have a Meissner 2961 in original condition, still plays with only the normal service over time. Quite a monster. Photos attached. Traded a old upholstered chair for it.

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to compare this 9-1091 Meissner I picked up at the PARS Tri-State Radiofest in Monaca PA.

It certainly is different than whats posted here.

I guess the "C" means something?

My "C" does appear different from your non-C. Notably, yours uses a separate, enclosed chassis for the FM front-end while mine is part of the main chassis and uses a single, combined AM/FM tuning gang. Yours has miniature audio tubes while mine uses octal. There are other differences as well. Maybe "C" meant Cost-Cutting.

Wow, there is actually more difference than I originally saw, now that the two are pictured together.

Anyhow, I wonder if one was a kit, the other factory built?

Nice find on that Meissner, Steve! The "C" might indicate a late production version. I would be tempted to recap it, and see how well it performs.

They should be forced to put things back the way they were….

Thank you Dave!
I know, its a frustrating situation.

Many of us have hundreds of images out there. Hard to reset everyone.
