    4-valve receiver. It comprises a rectangular box in landscape format, covered in black paper fabric, and with Bakelite supports, likewise black. It is a very heavy device, as it contains a switching and transmitter system within. The top of the box is chamfered, and houses three parts: at the sides are the two tuning wheels, from 0 to 180, and in the centre a selector for the three bands. There is a fragment of power flex on the left-hand side, and at the rear a space for the plug.
