WHAT IS A RESTORATION?
Instead of troubleshooting the radio to identify problem parts
or items (then replacing), we replace ALL the capacitors, resistors as
required [no greater than 10% variance], under chassis
wiring as required for safety. All tubes are tested - marginal ones replaced. Dial cord
tuning string repaired or tightened. High velocity air clean to remove
all surface dust. Alignment checked. Longevity PAK is installed
where possible. This is a voltage drop device to bring AC input voltage
closer to the 110 volts AC that older radios expected. An under
chassis fuse is installed for protection. Speaker replaced where necessary.
New dial lights installed. Controls are
treated with DEOXIT, tuning dials are checked and the radio is aligned
to factory specifications, and subjected to a 3 hour burn in Test.
This restoration process leads to emails such as this-

music again. The tuner sensitivity is incredible and
sound from the big 14 inch speaker is fantastic.
I highly recommend John if you live near the
Washington DC area. He only works on tube gear and
will work on hi fi separates as well as radios.
Happy to report that after nearly 4.5 years the
is running strong. No issues and the unit continues to
mystify folks on how a radio built in 1938 can still
operate in 2012 -- 74 years later! Continued testimony
to the great work you are performing in restoring
American history. Only one year away from its
Also, I absolutely LOVE the RCA 224, I can't turn it
The sound is good, I have a good
antenna on it, a long-wire running up to the top roof
and last night I discovered that I had to learn to tune
it by minute-increments as on bands A & C (broadcast and
Shortwave 6 - 18 mhz) the radio was absolutely flooded
with signals , it was amazing, it totally out-classed my
