RCA Radiola 44 ca: 1929

The Radiola 44 was one of RCA's last TRF receivers of the 1920s and in my opinion one of the best performing. Attractive "Art Deco" styling, a five tube set featuring 3 screen grid tuned stages; 2 RF +  detector/AF amplifier. The Output tube = #45, the rectifier #80.

many of the models 21, 44, 46 (all use the same RF chassis) suffer the same chronic problem, pot metal cancer! The chassis in this one is in excellent condition. As previously motioned, I stated previously, that my opinion the '44 is one of the best Radiola TRF sets of the 1920s as It's very selective and sensitive. The dial scale is kinda' neat, the station numbers are light projected onto the back side of the dial lens
