Remler 51 "Skipper"
1936
Bands: AM
Tube Lineup: 78, 77, 42, 80
A seldom seen bakelite radio, this Remler 51 shares many similarities with the Emerson bakelite radio cabinet designs of the mid-thirties. Emerson had made the switch to transformerless AC-DC radios at the time and Remler continued to use a small power transformer in this model 51, which is quite unusual for a small radio in the mid-1930s and likely an expensive design choice. The Tuned Radio Frequency (TRF) circuit utilizing two tubes and the audio output tube was also a bit dated for 1936. Nevertheless, the striking visual appearance of this Remler makes it a nice addition to my collection.
