Chris' Old Radios
This iconic Philco arrived on the bench dull and lifeless. After
replacement of all the paper capacitors the 2nd I.F. transformer was
found to be riddled with Silver Migration, the condition also known
as "Silver Mica Diease". Most common symptoms is static
and crackling when the radio is playing. I dissected and rebuilt both
of the I.F. transformers with external 100pf mica capacitors. Radio
plays strong and cleaned up really nice.
