Philco 49-900 12 “hippo” radio antenna connections

Post by breadboard88 on Fri Sep 22, 2017 7:16 pm

This Philco 49-900 12 “hippo” radio has a permanently installed antenna in the Bakelite case.
It came to me with the fine antenna wires disconnected from the chassis.
It looks like they might go to a fiber terminal with 3 soldering lugs mounted on the chassis to the rear of the tuning cap.
I can‘t figure which wire goes to which of the 3 tabs. There is also one fine wire coming off of the tuning cap lower soldering lug and I am not sure where it goes.

Sorry, but I needed to change the wording on the original post.

It came to me with the fine antenna wires disconnected from the chassis.
It looks like they might go to a fiber terminal with 4 soldering lugs mounted on the chassis to the rear of the tuning cap.
I can‘t figure which wire goes to which of the 4 tabs. There is also one fine wire coming off of the tuning cap lower soldering lug and I am not sure where the other end goes.
