OOPS Where did this come from?  Yes the Ham Station is new state of the art electronics


In my Ham Shack my "Daily Player Console" Zenith 15U269
And yes that is an early RCA 45 player along with a crystal set a very primative radio


And in the corner of my Ham Shack a Zenith Walton 9s232 plus a "Mic Radio" from WAWK which is a small local
small town Station The Baby Grand Piano including the correct piano bench. It is actually a Crosley Radio


Many of these are Emerson radios from Jean's collection.

Welcome to the "Big Dog" Console Collection.
Zenith 1000Z Stratosphere note the size difference to the transistor Zenith portable on top of the Stratosphere.
The Zenith Stratosphere 1000Z is a 25 tube radio which sold in 1935 for $750. At that same time you could purchase a brand new Ford Model A for $650
The Audio Amp in the Strat runs 8 type 45 tubes. 50 watts of tube undistorted audio. Painful to the ears if you crank it up. The Stratosphere is setting on an original Zenith Dealer Lazy Susan.
To the right a Zenith Junior Stratosphere model 16A61 This one only a 16 tube dual chassis radio. Still a very nice radio for those who didn't want to pop for the 1000Z 
And on top one of Jean's rare Emerson Table radios.


Philco's competition to the Zenith Stratosphere Model 37-690 which is a dual chassis 20 tube radio.
It is one super playing console radio.
And on top of it a Zenith Yacht Radio model 6B107. Yes it and the speaker next to it were sold by Zenith
in 1937 to be used on your "Boat" or in your RV Trailer. It is / was a 6 volt powered radio.
Only about 1000 of them were ever sold. They are today very rare to find a complete radio and speaker.


Moving right along on the Big Dog Consoles The Chrome one on the left is a McMurdo Silver Masterpiece Six with a Clifton Cabinet. It is a dual chassis
24 tube radio. McMurdo Silvers competitor to the Zenith Stratosphere. This receiver will rival the sound and ability of the Zenith 1000Z.
To the right not quite a big dog but very close is a General Electric model E155 Colorama Tuning 15 tube console. It runs a pair of 6L6 tubes
in the audio output at 30 watts.




And then on the left  The other "Silver Company" Scott Philharmonic late version 9 knobs and 30 tubes in this dual chassis all chrome
plated chassis radio. Yes it has the Tweeter Option. On the Right is a 12 tube Majestic 5 band console that also runs a pair of 6L6
tubes in it's audio amplifier. It has a most interesting dial with the 5 bands all done in yellow reverse etched printing and the Dial Bulb is the tuning indicator.
On top of these are three more of Jean's Emerson radios.
See the Emerson Page for all 100 of the Emerson Ingraham radios in Jean's collection.

Notice carefully the two on the left. Identical cabinets except the left one is a bit larger. The left side one is a VERY rare model CV296 Emerson Strad square dial YEAR TWO
for this cabinet design. The smaller one is the more common Emerson Strad model CL-256 D shaped dial. Later you will see the one called the "Big Strad"
So the question why would Emerson use a nearly identical but all dimensions are slightly larger on this model CV296 ? The answer is...
The small Stradivarius shaped cabinet sold very well. The following year is when the "New Invention" of the built in loop antenna came into being. The smaller
cabinet had zero room for the internal loop antenna so Emerson had the same thing built but slightly larger to accomodate the latest and greatest radio.



Ah Yes the Stromberg Carlson 1/2 round chairside model 231-R Very soon the rarer "Coffee Table" version 231-F will be in front of the couch


on top is a mini Cathedral radio labeled Wayne Hardware Co Ft Wayne Indiana yes it is smiling at you.
Stromberg Carlson Corner Console sorry not for sale. Corner designed cabinets are very rare.
And next to it an RCA model 9T Tombstone radio. This is one of the absolute best performing 9 tube radios to
be found. And everyone into old radios has to have someplace a Dog... yes Nipper the RCA Dog. And to the right of Nipper one of Jean's Emerson Radios.



And two more of Jean's Emerson radios. The one on the left is a VERY rare model. Yes it is found frequently in Bakelite with the same shape but Seldom found in
the wooden cabinet. Model 615 from 1949
