Zenith Model 807 Tombstone Radio (1935)
The Zenith 807 is an entry level five tube "small white
dial" set, introduced in July of 1934 as part of the line-up
for the 1935 model season. The original list price was
$39.95 in Eastern and Central regions. The small white
dial sets were produced for 1935 only, as the next year
saw the debut of Zenith's "big black dial" models.
Frequency coverage is in two bands, 538-1550kc
(standard broadcast) and 5610-17850kc (short wave).
The tube line-up is:- 6A7 (mixer/LO), 6D6 (IF), 75 (2nd
detector/AVC/1st AF), 42 (power output) and 80
(rectifier). A simple two-point high- frequency-cut type
tone control is provided. The schematic may be found
