So I bought this antenna about two weeks ago and I’ve been looking around to see what it goes with. Can anybody tell me exactly what radios this was meant to attach to? I was thinking something like a Radiola 28?
Any help is appreciated!

Not an RCA/Brunswick antenna. Possibly a FADA from a table model battery set. Looks like some sort of power cord included?

The bracket reminds me of something similar to what Stromberg Carlson used.

It is interesting that loop antennas were in use back in the 1920s, and didn't reappear until.around 1939-40.

It looks like it was an add on accessory and not a standard fixture to most models. I'm sure some collectors with a 1920s Stromberg Carlson would love to have that added onto their set. If you don't have a SC for that antenna then maybe you could sell it to someone who really could use it.

Make me a deal I can't refuse.


I have been going to make a loop antenna to use with my Grebe CR-9 / RORN combination.

I have been too lazy to work up the wooden frame.

Kirk,
That model of Stromberg-Carlson has pot metal pinion and bull gears that are always broken. A gear fix is expensive. Some use "O" rings and "V" pulleys (make). Others use dial cord and pulleys, also make. Has oversize iron for audio transformers, also will be open. Hard to find windings of that size iron. Offset, the interior electronics is also a work of art too. Anybody got an inside photo? A high quality radio for a Neutrodyne... Uses monster floor cone speaker...

Chas

Well,
I thank you all for the info.
As for selling it I will have to hold it for a while and look for the radio.

Thanks for the pot metal info.. I have a machinist in the family so that should be the easy part.

:mrgreen:
