PART 1: Restoration of the F.M. compatible HMV C23A mantle radio

This was the restoration that Chris demonstrated at the May 2019 meeting. The HMV C23A mantle radio is a very unusual model as it is both an AM and FM receiver, but using valve technology. We mainly associate FM receivers with transistor driven radios. The unusual dial stringing arrangement is also rather unique!
