Standard Darling Three Tube Radio 1936 Vintage Restoration Data Picture Schematic
In spite its imposing look, this Standard Darling was a low price, simple, basic receiver, a three tube, two band radio set from 1936. It was a reflex feedback audion receiver without IF frequency amplification. The first tube is used as RF [Radio Frequency] and as AF [Audio Frequency] amplifier. Designed to be used mostly with a good long antenna on MW [Medium Wave] and LW [Long Wave] it was a very dependale set. The radio is housed in a large stylish enclosure and it has an illuminated wide colored glass scale with the European city names marked for each strong station. This exact set was also sold by the Orion Company as receiver type 222.
