Duane... Excellent!!! .... and informative. Obviously - it took a lot of effort that really paid off. The loop shown in this picture and in the ad (hope you don't mind me posting it here)....

Image

is a Korach Loop like this one in my collection...

Image

It folds for "portability" and has a compass in the base...

ImageImage

At the bottom of the loop's upright is a modified dial knob marked in 360 degrees for directional purposes.......

Thanks to all that posted comments on my site.

Rick, I will keep you in mind when I decide to sell any of the sets. I think I know which ones you like the most. I have sold a couple in the past (thinking I needed to make room) and usually regreted it.

jgj6331: That's a great looking loop. Thanks for sharing the photos!

mgm,

I probably took the liberty of using your pix from the Net back then. Nice radio.

Figure the only reason you'd sell it, you must have 5 more that are better! Ha! I saw your fabulous DeForest wall!! :D

Thanks for going to the superhet site.

Rick

Well, I am so blown away of all the early superhet pictures and information uploaded to this thread! I just can't digest it all in one evening :wink:

Well, here is my contribution. I found this unique piece hiding under some junk at Fair Radio Sales in Lima Ohio. The price tag was $45 and I just was in disbelief! I quickly bought the thing which was missing all the tubes and the panel meter. I've since found a panel meter, but UV-199s are a bit scarce, so I've never tubed it up.

Whoever built this thing did an amazing job! What is most unique is a cam and lever mechanism which will move the stator of the rear variable capacitor up and down as the dial is turned. Probably to correct for tracking errors?

Quite ingenious in my opinion!

It uses Remler IFs and Karas Harmonix audio transformers which look like small electric motors from an Gilbert Erector Set.

That is amazing Steve. From the outside you would think it's a 1-2 tube rig. The small arrow w/circle knobs
on front are neat too. I assume the tiny holes on top are for two handles.

Thanks Phil!
Actually, I forgot to mention that the case is from a Radiola RC such as in this thread.

http://antiqueradios.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=128972

The small holes in the top were for the original lid hinges which the builder of this set decided to move and make the lid much longer.

Sad to see a Radiola RC hacked up, but obviously, it was done during the 1920s and the RCs were considered obsolete and good parts doners.

Yes, the front is quite deceiving of whats inside. :D

Thanks, gentlemen.

Stole the idea from a different thread.

Hope Ziggy doesn't mind if I took some liberties.

And, yes, MGM, you should recognize da forest and da trees! :lol:

I thought I'd add to this very interesting thread on early Superhet sets. This past weekend, I picked up a Madison Moore Superhet set for $150 at a local auction. This Madison Moore is a heavy monster in a SOLID walnut wood case.... no veneer. Below are photos of the set as I bought it in very clean condition.
I was hoping some of you 1920s Superhet Junkies might be able to give some info on this Madison Moore model built in Denver, CO.

Hi Britt,

Very beautiful Madison-Moore super you have there!
I have parts to a Madison-Moore, but that's all, just parts. And some small parts are missing. Someone must have torn one apart, boxed up the parts and I bought them up at a fleamarket for $5. The box looked very old, so it probably happened many years ago.

I would like to assemble it someday even if I build the cabinet myself.

I would love to see larger images of yours.

Thanks for sharing!
