COLUMBUS MODEL 18

Manufactured for Columbus Radio Centre Ltd by Radio Corporation of New Zealand in 1936, production ran until 1937.

Columbus had several different model 18 variants - these were a 1936 dual wave 6-valve (plus eye on some models) set.

Valve Lineup: 6D6, 6A7, 6D6, 6B7, 42, 80 and 6E5 magic eye on some models

I.F. Frequency: 456kc/s

Chassis Notes: Model 18 chassis, found in tabletop cabinets, often with a vibrator power supply, or tombstone as mains only. Dual wave. Radiomuseum has a tombstone without magic eye, and the schematic does not show one. Production serial numbers have been noted in both 1936 and 1937.

All documented models using the same chassis
