I've looked high and low and can't identify a model number and/or a schematic for the clock radio below. Can anyone help me? Looks like the model number would be C-255, but I can't find anything.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks Greg, but no joy. I like that grillecloth.com site but it did not have this radio listed. I opened up the back and it is the 12BE6, 12BA6, 12AT6, 50C5, and 35W4 tubes.

No joy on the Nostalgiaair site either.

Why do you need a schematic? Is there some part(s) missing?

For a schematic, look through one of the Beitman's manuals from the early 1950s. Most of the miniature tube AA5 radio circuits are identical.

This set is one of those less common brands that not a lot of information exists about.

As others have noted, there is very little reason to ever need an exact schematic for any AA5 set since they are so generic.

Wow glassdave that looks almost identical. I found this one: http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/regal_c_52 ... radio.html to use as my basis, and the schematics are almost identical.

Now I've got three clock radios to conquer! Dumont 1120, Traler 55C44, and Regal XX.

Thanks for the help guys/gals.

Regal C-255 seems reasonable.
Could have been built by the Jewel company. At that time they built clock radios to order for others name brands.
Keep searching for the identical cabinet with a different name.
This pic shows your missing knob. Cheers.

Thanks WestcoastJohn. I did see that picture with the knob. Now the trick is to find that knob and the clock knob for the Dumont 1120.
