General Electric J64
1941
Bands: AM, SW
Tube Lineup: 6SA7, 6SK7, 6SQ7, 6J5, 6Y6, 5Y3
The J64 is one of GE's multiband radios with the nice curved corner on the left. My J64 was missing the loop antenna so one was recreated by making several turns of wire around the back of the radio. The 6SA7 oscillator tube has been known to not operate correctly with the loop antenna hooked up wrong and I struggled to fix the issue for some time. I have had many requests on how to recreate the antenna or fix the problem, and it has been many years since I last worked on it so I do not remember more details beyond what has been mentioned here.
