The General Electric H-150 is a seldom seen large console radio that uses the same chassis as the more upscale model G-106. Enclosed in a lovely cabinet with diagonal wood veneer around a large sliding rule dial similar to many other GE radios of the late 1930s era, the radio features motorized tuning using either the pushbuttons at the top of the cabinet or a knob for rapid tuning. The radio has 10 tubes including a 6U5 tuning eye and a pair of 6V6 tubes in a push pull audio output stage.
I purchased this radio in 2019 from a fellow VRPS member and friend. For the most part, it only needed new capacitors. Fortunately most of the original capacitors were still intact so I restuffed them to maintain original appearance of the electronics. The cabinet was stripped and refinished with "Special Walnut" stain and spar urethane finish. The original grill cloth was long gone so a replacement was installed but does not have the original pattern.
