Object statement
Radio receiver and document, Hotpoint 'Band master', timber / glass / electronic components / paper, designed and made by AWA for Australian General Electric Pty Ltd, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 1940-1946, modified by David Hain, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 1989
The Hotpoint Bandmaster radio was designed and manufactured by AWA for Australian Electric Industries in the early to mid 1940s. The cabinet styling includes some ornamental elements however the simplicity of the overall form and the use of modern (ply) materials make this radio more suitable for a modern post war interior. The radio includes circuit diagrams and notes on modifications made by the donor in the late 1980s.
Designed and manufactured by AWA for Australian General Electric Pty. Ltd. 1940-1946.
This radio was collected between the late 1940s and the late 1960s when the donor was an active radio electronic engineer operating a business from home building and repairing radios. The donor accumulated a collection of radios, valves, radio journals and assorted electrical engineering material over a lifetime.
