  WESTINGHOUSE AERIOLA Junior  


The AERIOLA Junior Crystal Receiver is the first factory built radio and was Introduced in June 1921 with a pair of  headphones. It uses a PERIKON Detector. Until the Aeriola Jr., only do-it-yourself Crystal Sets were available on the market.

 

It was made by Westinghouse for RCA, because RCA had no manufacturing factories in the 1920's.

The PERIKON Detector uses two rare minerals (Bornite and Zincite) contacting each other, comparing to the Cat's Whisker contact in the Galena Crystal.

 This 5 tubes TRF receiver was produced by  the Kenman Electric Co. of Lynbrook NY in 1926. It is battery operated with three tuned RF amplifier tubes, a detector tube and audio amplifier tube. The three tuning knobs on the front panel turn three variable capacitors.

 

All the tubes are the same: UV201A
