Chuckle. Writing the original article was a bit of serendipity.
Years ago a couple of these weird small tubes were brought to an AWA
annual meet for identification. Another AWA member, Wilson Norwood,
recognized them as belonging to those tiny cathedral radios he had
once serviced. I found a new-product description in an issue of
Radio-Craft, and wrote a short piece for the Old Timers Bulletin.
Another AWA member in upstate New York realized that he had one of
these sets, and asked me if I wanted to buy it (silly question). I
also bought a spare set of tubes at another AWA meet.
It will figure in another book I'm intending to write, on the
introduction of the AC/DC peewee radio in 1932. The Radio Products
model is not AC/DC, but was another attempt at a miniature set, an
interesting bit of technology.
