Quite a few were Belmonts. Truetones were also built by Traveler, Detrola, CRTC (Continental/Admiral), and probably others too.<P>Mike Koste<P>------------------<BR>

Wasn`t Western Auto a seller for Truetone. Not a maker.<P>------------------<BR>Rodney

That's correct, Rodney. Western Auto was a retailer and their house brand for radios was Truetone. Just like Sears, Wards, and other major retailers, they did not actually make the radios they sold. There is no telling how many different manufacturers Western Auto contracted with over the years to build radios for them, but it was more than just a few. <P>------------------<BR>Dennis
