Admiral 577-5Q

Admiral 577-5Q


Bands: AM

Tube Lineup: 12K7, 12SA7, 12SQ7, 50L6, 35Z5

A nice radio produced by Continental Radio & Television Corporation as the model 5Q, this Admiral sports a grand gold-brown dial and four station preset pushbuttons at the top of the cabinet. The circuitry is a simple AA5 that performs well. The cabinet looks similar to my Pla-Mor 5CU and Admiral 361-5Q, both of which were also made by Continental Radio & Television Corp. For Admiral radios from around this era, I believe the numbers in the model number before the dash represents the cabinet and dial configurations, and the chassis model for technical information is after the dash. The model 5Q for this Admiral can be found in the Rider schematics under Continental Radio & Television Corp.
