This is a receiver for a direction-finding system. The receiver is monstrously heavy no matter how it's disassembled.




Front of the receiver. The paint is OK, but will require some cleaning. The controls will have to be re-painted.



Face plate off, showing the mechanics underneath. Very complex and expensive design and mechanics. The name "Fortuna" probably was the assembler or tester of this receiver.



Headphone terminals, power and mode controls. Selective vacuum tube voltmeter. All rusted parts will have to be refurbished.



The frequency scale system - beautiful construction.



Signal intensity meter along with other controls. This was critical for accurate direction finding.



All the parts are there - but need various degrees of restoration.



Rust. Rust. Rust. - the writing around the tube openings was done by hand.



Some of the debris pulled out of the receiver.



Cracked retaining bracked for the third frequency range HF section.



Rust. Clean-up and restoration.



The fine-tuning adjustment gear. This light rust needs to be carefully cleaned up.

Interior of the case.



Power connector.



Cables going to the direction finding antenna and control system.



Unknown component.



This connector system couples the receiver to the direction-finding complex.



The on/off switch disassembled for cleaning. It is completely serviceable and comes apart quite easily.



During the restoration of the selective voltmeter, after removing the back Bakelite contact gasket, the next layer can be seen here. Note the yellow arrows pointing to the guides/rivets. I am still in the process of figuring out how to remove this Bakelite layer from the rest of the switch. If anyone has experience dismantling these switches, please contact me.



This is the bottom-most layer of the selective voltmeter switch.
