RCA 118 "Globetrotter" (1934)


RCA 118 "Globetrotter" (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1934, RCA introduced its new "Magic Brain" technology, which had a tuned RF stage and used the new pentagram converters, the 6A7 tube in this version. Another feature was the coarse/fine tuning, which was utilized by pulling out the tuning knob. The RCA 118 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with new Mylar caps. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, safety fuse and external audio cable were added. The cabinet has been restored and has a nice "piano" lacquer finish. The original knobs, grille cloth, speaker and chassis are with the radio. This early super-het is an excellent performer, with lots of volume and great sensitivity across the dial. There was a Canadian version and an American version. This is the latter, which has the fancier dial escutcheon. This is a wonderful RCA that would grace anyone's collection! 17-1/2"H x 14-1/2"W x 10"D.
