I had several requests to make shipping available, so I am re-listing this radio. Please read the new shipping and delivery options below.
Downsizing requires me to thin out my collection, so I am offering this1939 Stromberg-Carlson model 440M console radio. This handsome 10-tube AM/SW radio features motorized tuning. It employs two 6V6tubes in push-pull configurationand the patented "Acoustical Labyrinth" speaker system for superior audio.
This radio receives the standard broadcast (AM) band and shortwave from 2-5 - 22.5 MHz. Eight tuning pushbuttons can be set to any AM stations of your choice. The radio uses a longwire antenna (any sort of wire will do, the longer the better).
I have restored the electronics by replacing the paper capacitors and some out-of-tolerance resistors, and cleaning and lubricating the controls and tuner. It plays as designed, with nice fidelity and plenty of volume.
The cabinet has ornate details and is finished in walnut veneer, with matching panels in front. It is in nice original condition, withscuffs and scrapes normal for any 72-year old piece of furniture.The grille cloth is in excellent condition. All of the knobs are original and intact. The dial glass markings are clear and undamaged. The decals above the knobs arecomplete and free of wear.
The Acoustical Labyrinth system was patented by Stromberg-Carlson in 1939, US Patent 2,014,777.
