Hello all,

Wanted to share a new acquisition I recently picked up via a fellow collector. Looks to be from the mid 30's. Have any of you ever heard of the company before? Seems rather obscure. Will eventually be restored and used with my pre-war Ham radio receivers for HF. I think it would match up rather nice with my RME 9-D or RCA ACR-136.


Thanks,

Jon

I have heard of the Peak-11 preselector and I saw on at Kutztown about 4 years ago, unfortunately already sold.

I have also seem magazine advertisements for this preselector in 1930 radio magazine reprints.

Unfortunately that is everything I know, can't tell you anything more

I have a friend who has one. Would think it would be a better match for a set w/o a rf stage like a FB-7 or S-19. Don't think you would get much of an improvement by using it w/the ACR-136. Have a ragged ACR-175 that is waiting on service.

Thank you both for the input.

Terry the "175" is the model up from mine I think or the top model for 1934-1935. Very nice. I have seen pictures of your collection from time to time, very impressive pre-war collection you have. I will have to post mine on another topic. Know anybody with an original set of plug in Hamurlund coils for a 1933 Comet pro? I have been looking for a year now for an original set!

Would this pre-selector work well with the RME 9D? I know both this model and the RME-69 are plagued with image frequency problems. I know RME made a matching pre-selector as well, sadly I do not have one.

Thanks,


Jon

Yes I do have a bunch of junk!!

Can't say that I do. Might be easier to find the forms and roll your own. I forms do show up pretty often.

Generally speaking the problems w/rejection get worst as the frequency gets higher. So something like a RME-152 might be a fun toy to play w/. Don't know if ur a ham or not but if you are looking a a good pre war receiver check out a HRO Senior. http://www.radioblvd.com/National%20HRO.htm
Am working on a cheap digital readout for my 1936 model. Just abt done just waiting on some rg-174 to arrive to hook it all up.
Hmmm the '175 may have a digital dial too...

Nice chatting

Where's the rectifier? Or is it powered from the radio it is used with?
