Hello,
I need help identifying this radio. The closest I’ve been able get is the Model FE-24A posted by Gregg two years ago. Attached are photos. I’m planning for retirement by gathering project radios, parts and schematics to keep my busy and my mind stimulated. You guys were a wealth of information for one of my first projects years ago, so here we go again.

Your set is a superheterodyne while the FE-24A is a TRF set, not very close. You need to post the tube lineup of your set to help us ID what model you have.

Try FE-60: http://www.nostalgiaair.org/pagesbymode ... 006469.pdf

Tube list. The metal can was rusted up with no visible markings. The other tube sockets actually had the tube type molded in them.

The metal can is the ballast. On the schematic Michael linked to, it's shown as a K49C.

It's a socketed device, but it's not a vacuum tube... It's basically just a power resistor. It's designed to drop 49 volts at 300 mA, with a tap for a dial lamp.

The FE-60 has a different tube layout. Does anyone else have any ideas or is this just that rare of a set? Thanks.

The model 357-L looks like the correct tube arrangement. I think the 357-P is the same.

Edit: It's probably a 357-P. I think the model L was for export to Europe.

Thanks Jay. I downloaded a schematic from Steve Johnson’s website. The tube layout and type match up. I would love to find more info such as a Photofact, etc.
