Thanks Matt. Publications that are in the public domain are ok, such as schematics.

I want to make this a simple picture search for 20's supers, linking in the better descriptions and more detailed information such as on Duane's site. Also a few links back to here might help with all of the pictures that are missing now.

I have begun contacting interested parties. If I miss anybody, don't hesitate giving me a PM or contact through Russ' Old Radios. I would post my email here but I already have enough friends in central Africa (still waiting for my million $).

Russ

Nope. They are not well organized. You have to know the name/maker. You have to be a member and pay or other hoops. So No. The site has also become quite commercial.
That is all incorrect. You can search many ways (detailed search). Membership is worthwhile, and is done by snail mail to avoid jokers, pretenders, or outright crooks. Anyone who collects radios and is not a member of Radiomuseum is shooting theirself in the feet. Long after other information is lost or deleted, RM will be around, as it is supported by a well-funded foundation.

Best of luck in the Roaring 20's Superhets endeavor. I look forward to seeing the end results.

FWIW, I agree with you wholeheartedly regarding certain RM zealots and picture theft!

BR,

Terry

I am going to begin working on the 20's Super ID Page.

The Microdyne looks great! I enjoyed reading your article on it.

I have made a great deal of progress on the super-directory:

https://www.russoldradios.com/1920s-sup ... odyne.html

Thanks much to Rick, Duane and Kent.

The page is large, probably too large for dial-up,

Russ

It seems that Duane was correct about the original meter on my Victoreen AND Harry managed to find one - all I had to do is install it.

This radio is still one of the best early supers that I have tested and the meter that allows the user to monitor both A+ and B+, along with the simple controls, makes it probably the most user-friendly.
