New toys

Post by Motorola man on Sun Jun 03, 2012 3:37 pm

I picked up a couple radios this weekend, AK models 46 & 47. The 46 is rough cosmetically, but inside looks really good. The 47 is in pretty good shape all around. Now I just need to find a place to put them.

Watch those built in power supplies. Hard to work on, and, the paper cap filters tend to suddenly short.
Whole mess, including power trans., and, filter chokes are encased in tar.
Nasty stuff..
I got rid of a 40 with a horted cap. When I disconnected caps, power transformer was fine. Re connect, and, Smoke!!!!!!!

Hi,
Are you sure the 47 isn't actually a 45? The 47 used a F type speaker. The 45 uses the exact black and green E that you show in the picture.
Thanks,
Jimmy

It is a model 47 with the incorrect speaker. The previous owner had them displayed together, I'm sure it was just because the colors matched on both pieces. The model 46 came with the correct speaker, although it's in pretty rough shape. I wish that the E would work, it's a much better looking speaker than the F.
