    That shouldn’t be a problem as both my Volksempfanger VE301Wn and Philco 444 survived traveling across the pond after surviving WWII 😉

    Hi Gary,

    Glad you arrive safely home. I have not had a chance to fire it up yet. I will try tomorrow and let you know.

    Yes, I had it running today. It could only pick up a limited amount of stations and rather fuzzy but operational. Not sure what the toggle switch on the back does? I look forward to do some work on it. Cheers.

    Steve, Good to hear it survived the cross country trip including bouncing around in the rental car’s trunk. You would have to add an antenna wire to the screw in the back if you want better reception. It should be re-capped at some point anyway as it looks quite original. Have fun with it. The switch had me baffled as well. There seems to be a shielded cable and a pack of capacitors alongside the switch.
    The modification looks as old as the radio itself.
