Default What is the model number of this Philips? Identified as an L1G30T.

I am looking to try and buy the pictured model Philips transistor radio. It was the model owned by my late sister and wed spend many hours listening to it. Purely for happy memories Id like one. I saw one recently on eBay but it was part of a job lot and beyond a practical buy.
Thanks.

Its abbreviated brochure number is 130T, but that isn't the full model number. L1G30T is the full model number. The recommended retail price was 11 Guineas.

I attach the spec pages from a Philips 1964-65 dealer catalogue, FYI.

Lovely little set I had one of these mostly used when I was riding my bike in the late 60s early 70s it was a gift (faulty) from a neighbour. The earpiece is attached not on a plug/socket which was a bit of a pain at times!

One of the many sets lost when my parents moved in the around 1980, and they dumped all my stuff

I have seen them at rallies and on Ebay been tempted a time or two.

Cheers

Agree, that's the correct model, the volume/power switch was very unreliable, changed quite a few way back, still got several spares if you are lucky enough to get one.

That what was wrong with the one I was gifted as it was already 5 years old when I got it and transistor radios were becoming much cheaper they were put off by the repair quote hence my good fortune.

I was 13 and had offered to repair it for the cost of the parts but no one thought a mere child could repair such things although I had been repairing radios and TV's for almost a year by then (for myself).

Cheers

Looks a lovely, 'well balanced', attractive set.
