Default Re: Restoration of a Neutrofon Guldsegl 5308

Hi Jan, thanks for the post on this unusual radio. What a lovely set, it must sound superb with good quality broadcasts. That looks to have been a challenging overhaul with all those suspect capacitors and resistors, I imagine the AF amp section with all its tone circuitry must have been quite awkward. It's always interesting to see some Continental luxury sets as a comparison to what was produced by the UK makers. Also interesting to see that they used a UCH81 (?) as VHF/FM mixer/oscillator as well as in the AM section, there seems to have been something of a transition period in early VHF/FM sets where various approaches were tried.

Colin
