Kadette F "Junior"
Tube Lineup: 6F7, 12A7
The Kadette model F "Junior" is arguably one of the most innovative radio designs of the Depression Era. Although not battery powered, this little portable radio measures approximately 4 inches wide by 6 inches tall and contains a whole two-tube T.R.F. circuit! These "pocket" radios are highly sought after by collectors. This "Circassian Walnut" mottled peanut butter example originally sold for $15 in 1933 and today is one of the hardest to find of all Kadette Junior radio cabinet colors. International Radio Corp also sold these Kadette Juniors in a variety of other cabinet colors including brown bakelite for $12.50 or "Chinese Red" and "Antique Ivory" plaskon for $15.
