PHILIPS 660 A/U WIRELESS, 1938

Supplied by Philips Lamp Co in August 1938. Made by Mullard as Model MAS24.
The wooden cabinet in dark wood stain is in almost perfect condition. With square dial and revolving needle tuning, this is directly controlled by eight buttons each can be tuned to a selected station individually. A special type of tuning condenser is used for this designed by Philips and known as a "Beehive" tuner (see item A0745). The valve used are:- EF8 - EK2 - EF9 - EBL2 and A21, also a tuning indicator EM1. Purchase price not found.

Your comments:

  • This radio was one of a series that used a concentric tuning gang, rather like a Philips Beehive trimmer but much bigger of course. It was direct linear action, in and out and presumably the makers thought that would be easier with the push button control.
    Only Philips could come up with it !!
