@rubber_jonnie especially when he kept touching the chassis tube side, on old tube radios quite often the chassis was live.

Wood made a good insulator though.

It looks v...

Also makes me think "why do people say 15KHz when it's 15.7KHz?". I'm sure the makers didn't do a raffle to decide the frequency.
15.62KHz if we are going to be picky :)
Which is why most people say 15Khz!!
