The 1.7 - 2.0 Mc frequency range is (approx) the amateur 160-Meter ham band.

It might be a pre-amp, or a transmitter. Need a schematic.

That two-conductor connector could be a socket for a crystal.

WOW, I am impressed. How do you find this stuff? What search method/vehicle do you use?

Thanks,

Terry

Terry, on the radiomuseum.org search page https://www.radiomuseum.org/
Just enter the tube line-up... and Bob's your Uncle.(ironic British expression of something easily done)... :)

Same thing at americanradiohistory.com search→ Philmore Mfg

Very good Greg, that little DX machine sure is pretty. If you still keep a (SWL) paper log, you will have it filled in no time. Lol

73 de Greg.
