Superheterodyne receiver
Made shortly after World War II, under Philips licence, based on the Philips 208U chassis. This model, with a wooden cabinet covered with cloth made of paper rope, was marketed as the more expensive version of the bakelite model H126U. The coil cans have date stamps for 1939 and 1940.
The radio cabinet consists of two wooden side panels and a wooden frame, covered with woven paper rope. Paper rope is made of strings of strong paper. The material was known for a long time and was also used by the Germans in the First World War. During the war in The Netherlands, shoes and bags were made paper rope. The material is still available in arts and crafts shops.
The controls are situated on the left and right hand side of the radio. On the left the on/off/volume knob and on the right the tuning knob and the wave length switch.
The receiver has three bands: short wave (16,5-51 meters), medium wave (196-570 meters) and long wave (750-1910 meters). The intermediate frequency 452 kHz.

One of the station names on the scale is Herrijzend Nederland (Emerging Netherlands). Radio Herrijzend Nederland broadcasted from the end of the war until January 19, 1946. After that Stichting Nederlandse Radio-Omroep in Overgangs-tijd took over on January 20, 1946.
