That looks like a forlorn example of a U182 but be careful because I think there were two versions of identical outward appearance.

It could be a U182 or an A182. They are identical on the outside but one is AC/DC and one is AC. A picture of the inside would help here.

Cheers,

It's an A182.

You'll find the manual via the link at top right under Vintage Radio Service Data.

Decent set when done up.

Cheers,

Steve P.

I would guess from the fact there is an AC/DC version of this set and the size of the mains transformer, that it is an Autotransformer.Therefore live chassis working precautions should be observed.
