"Plastic" radios have become very popular
as collector's items. The tube complement is 12BE6
mixer oscillator, 12BA6 IF, 12AT6 detector, 50B5
audio output and 35w4 rectifier. Many radios of
this era were 120v AC/DC. There is no power
transformer. Tube filaments are connected
in series and a dropping resistor used if necessary.
In this 5 tube example, no dropping resistor
is needed because the filaments total 121v.
