PACIFIC (POST-WWII) 6PP (CIRCA 1951)

The Pacific (Post-WWII) 6PP was manufactured for A. H. Nathan Ltd by Akrad Radio Corporation Ltd in about 1951.

6-valve dual-wave radio with push-pull output

Probably very similar to the 7PE which is a 6-valve dual wave radio with magic eye.

Valves (6): EF22, ECH21, EF22 or ECH21, EBL21, EBL21, 5Y3 or EZ35

Frequency Bands: 2

Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)

Valve lineup is best-guess - based on other similar models from this year.

Likely identical to the 7PE (no schematic held for that model either) with the exception of the magic eye

General Construction Notes for Akrad Radio Corporation Ltd:

Akrad sets often consist of 3 (or 4) numbers (eg: 518, 1059) or number-letter-number (5M4), and a common pattern exists for these sets: The first digit(or 2 digits in the case of 10-or-more valves) is the number of valves, the second is the number of bands and the third is the last digit of the year. Where the middle digit is a letter rather than a number it generally refers to the type of set - M for mantle, P for portable, G from radiogram etc

Often sets can be dated by the speaker, as many Akrad sets from the Pye era have the date of manufacture stamped on the back of the magnet housing.
