Used in Courtenay, Pacific and CQ (model 62) models in 1933/34. 6-valve superhet with AVC. This model 106 should not be confused with an earlier (1931) 6-valve TRF console produced by RCNZ - also called the model 106.

General Construction Notes for Radio Corporation of New Zealand Ltd: The first digit of the serial number typically indicates the year of manufacture of RCNZ chassis' (although not the decade - that requires a little knowledge of the valves, construction, etc). Sets from around 1934 onwards were often (but not always) constructed in a distinctive pressed 'baking pan' style chassis, seemingly unique to RCNZ.

All documented models using this chassis (3 in total)
