Some information on my hobbies

I listening the old world on a radio of 20's, she works very well, even today

I collect old radio TSF, manufactured by company DUCRETET, become DUCRETET Thomson (USA) in 1936
I give them in external good state and of operation, often after 60 or 80 years of silence.

 

Below, repairing of old TSF (BCL)
After change of some capacitors, and checking the voltages of the tubes.
I make a realignment of the oscillating circuits.
This model is of 1937, there are all current, it does not have an electric transformer.
the adjustment of the voltage this fact by metal plates located in the back of the frame.
all the filaments of the tubes are in series, so, If a tube is cut, the radio does not work.

 

Below, my favorite, a very rare model LDC6 Ducretet of 1929


Below, my power supply home made, for the radio battery 20's.

She gives the voltage necessary for my old radio
80 to 120 volt for plates
40 volt for grids
0 to 16 volt for polarization
0 to 4 volt for filaments

Some rare tubes of my collection TSF
only manufactured by DUCRETET in the 20's years, these rare tubes were called "Bigrilles Red JM".
( Behind 3 rare french tubes of emission of the 20's ).

 

I make it again, with to tubes of type NOVAL, for saved the rare originals.

left (copy home made) --- right (original).
