I inherited a couple from my great uncle when he passed. I have mostly Philco's, Zeniths, Atwater Kents as these are my favorites.
All of the radios in my collection worked the last time. The cabinet on this radio is in great shape as you can see from the pictures. I only collected top quality radios so they are all in excellent shape.The 7-J-232 (7J232) "Waltons" tombstone is so named today because of its use by the family in the 1970s television series of the same name. The radio actually came in four flavors, the 7-J-232, 7-S-232, 9-S-232 and 12-S-232, where the first number represents the number of tubes used. The -S- models are ac-powered sets featuring a tuning eye and, in the case of the domestic 9 and 12 tube models, motorized tuning. The 7-J is basically a dual-use farm set, capable of running from either the 110V ac line or a 6V storage battery. All four models cover three bands and feature Zenith's much beloved robot dial (nowadays also known as a shutterdial). The tube complement for the 7-J-232 is:- 6S7G (RF amp), 6D8G (mixer/LO), 6S7G (IF amp), 6T7G (2nd det/AGC/1st AF), 6L5G (2nd AF), 1J6G (duo-triode used for push-pull o/p) and 6ZY5G (rectifier). The audio output power is 1.75W. Overall band coverage is from 540-18,400kc. The item "Zenith 7-J-232 (7J232) Waltons Tombstone Radio (1938)" is in sale since Sunday, September 27, 2015.
