5-valve dual-wave radio
Multiple different cabinet options and two different dials seen for the Courtenay version.
Available as a broadcast-band only version, the model 94.
The main dial option for this model had an ornate embossed heavy card dial which appears to have a clearcoat finish. This finish is often found to have flaked badly with age / UV as seen in the photos above. Repro dials are available.
Frequency Bands: 2
Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)
One schematic seen - for model 94. 95 is the same but with a dual-wave coil setup. Chassis is an unusual size and shape - over 3" deep and folded metal, not pressed like most.
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.
