The authors claimed that this was a "full directory of shortwave receivers" for set building and servicing. You get details on 16 different Allied Radio Sets, 10 Atwater-Kents, 8 Crosleys, 25 Emersons, as well as many more by Federate Purchaser, General Electric, Howard, Insuline International Radio, Lafayette, Montgomery Ward, RCA, Sears, Sparks Withington, and others.
You get details on three different versions of the Hammarlund Comet Pro, the Hallicrafters Skyrider and SuperSkyrider, The National HRO, SRR, SW-3, and portable transceiver, and McMurdo Silver Masterpiece III. More than 239 different shortwave radios. ©1935-2002 Lindsay. 240 pages.
