PostSubject: is this and early atwater kent desk radio?   Mon Oct 18, 2010 9:12 pm

Well here is my big find for the summer... driving home one day, it was sitting on the curb with a "free" sign on it. Not alot of thought had to go into this one....of course I took it. Not sure what it is though.... it has a really nice Atwater Kent speaker in it. The only label I can find is a Red Lion "radio cabinet" decal. Is it a breadboard cabinet???? ANY help or thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated. THANKS.... jerry.

I would say "yes"...only because Red Lion supplied radio cabinets for Atwater Kent. Red Lion, PA is not too far from where I live, and that is where these were made. Perhaps Dale Davenport (another member here on the ARF) could supply more details on your particular cabinet, and what radio would have gone inside it. Probably not a breadboard radio, because they were earlier models.

Nice desk/radio cabinet, by the way. Sure can't beat the price, and I'm glad you saved it! It's a pretty useful thing...pay the bills, and listen to the radio at the same time!

Looks like the right size for a Model 20 C (Compact) or model 30. AK

Agree with Mark - doubt it was for a bread board.....
Some simple measurements of the radio compartment might narrow the list of suspects....

Sorry, should have posted the dimensions earlier... the radio area is 17 1/4" long, 7 1/2" deep and 5 1/2" high... Does anyone have a AK model 20C they could measure? It looks like the radio would have just slid in, no permanent mounting screws/holes etc.
Thanks,
jerry.
