Recently I picked up this Atwater Kent in a Pooley Cabinet. But I’m having trouble identifying it. So far the closest resemblance I’ve been able to found is to the 44s. But in this case it appears to have a longer wire harness to the power supply which is now stored in the bottom of the cabinet. Overall in wonderful shape and I hope to get it recapped soon. The only problem so far is that the original horn driver is present, but in pieces being pot metal. If anyone has a cheap driver they’d be willing to lark for cheap let me know. Doesn’t have to be Atwater Kent either since it will be relatively hidden.

It looks like an Atwater Kent model 36 to me.

Yes, as Jimmy stated, that is a later version of the model 36.
Tje 44 was in a self contained metal box.
The 36 is AKs first AC set.

On some models, there will be a name plate with model information located on the left side of the radio chassis
Edit: Definitely not a 44. The small antenna tuning knob on the left rules that out. I think Jimmy might have it right.

Someone has plugged an 80 rectifier tube in the socket of the RF amplifier socket. Needs a 26 tube.

It also seems to have a tipped 27 tube, probably by arcturus?

Thanks for the reply’s everyone! I’ve went and changed the subject to now for the proper model.
Does anyone know where I could get a schematic to get started on it?

Yeah... and what worries me most is that the two prongs off of this socket (I’m assuming antenna and ground prongs) go to an outlet plug :shock: REALLY hoping that that was never plugged into an outlet and hopefully to a plug that was someone’s long wire setup....
