radio is the first model of people’s Hungarian radio.
The Hungarian’s politics, at that time aligned with Italy and
Germany, led to the production of this small radio that was later
called "Horthy Néprádió" in relation to the leader
The Horthy néprádió, conceptually and as size, is very similar to
German DKE38 but the difference is that it can receive only the
Bakelite case of this Néprádió, has dimensions similar to those
of popular German model but is more decorated and, on the top, has
the Hungary’s emblem.
The left knob operates the input coils coupling, the right knob operates
the reaction variable capacitor. The graduated wheel, located to the
centre, is directly connected to the tuning variable capacitor shaft. In the rear of the radio there
is lever power switch.
This radio model was manufactured by: Orion, Telefunken, Philips and
Basically there are two versions, aesthetically identical, which
differ only for the power supply system.
The most common is the "V" type, “Váltóáramra” (current
exchange rate), this type has an autotransformer which can work with
four different alternate voltages: 105 / 125 / 150 / 220 V.
The other version is the "U" type, “univerzális” (universal),
in which the mains supply is
directly connected to the circuit of the radio and can operate at
110 / 220 V. AC or DC.
