Unusual Dial

Came accross a picture of a small transistor radio with a very unusual dial...



Can anybody identify the country of use?/stations?/frequencies?.... are "2" and "4" bands?

Hmm...no idea...but Radiola was used by RCA in the early days of tube radio!

AWA is an Australian brand.

You can see more unusual dials from that brand here: https://www.google.com/search?q=AWA+...ccJiPy3kd00JM:

Interesting...thanks!

So the 2 and 4 designations are not bands, but are originating states, with 2 indicating New South Wales and 4 indicating Queensland. Example: 2BL is Sydney on 702 kHz and 4BC is Brisbane on 1116 kHz. Radio is standard AM band only.

Looks as if AWA (not to be confused with Aiwa) made some very nice radios.

Packard Bell used to put radio station callsigns on their radio dials.
