BELL PLANET 'COLT' (1957)

The Bell Planet was manufactured by Bell Radio-Television Corporation Ltd in 1957.

The Planet was a Colt in a solid oak cabinet.  Sales literature shows it to be a standard AM broadcast only model although JWS refers to it as a dual-wave.  Its probable that there were dual wave sets sold in these unusual cabinets as well.

The solid oak cabinet was an oddity since most timber cabinets were veneer over ply.  Being solid it was thicker that usual and appears quite chunky.  They also seem prone to warping and cracking.

Valves (5): ECH81, EF89, EBC81, EL84, EZ80

Intermediate Frequency: 455kc/s
