I just bought a Motorola 61B bakelite radio for restoration. It did not come with a back. I poked around everywhere online and I can't find what the back is supposed to look like. I can get creative, but I'd like to make it as close to original as possible.

Mike had a model 62B some years back. Maybe he could answer your question.

His PM is active at the bottom of his postings.

Same cabinet - - different chassis (model 61) - - unusual back!

Thanks for digging out this information. I sent Mike a message.

It looks like it houses some type of loop antenna. The schematic calls it a "hank antenna." What's that?
