[RCA 66X3]
RCA Victor 66X3, 1946

Tube complement: 12SG7 RF, 12SA7 mixer/oscillator, 12SK7 IF, 12SQ7 detector, 35L6GT audio output, 35Z5GT rectifier.

This is a large (nearly 16 inches wide) six-tube AC/DC table radio.  The calibration markings on the weird inward-curved glass dial have depth; they are silkscreen painted on both sides of the glass and edge-lighted from both ends.  The radio's circuit is super-deluxe.  It has the sixth (RF amplifier) tube, an IF-frequency trap at the antenna input, two bands (AM and shortwave), and adjustable padders on both bands for accurate frequency calibration across the whole dial.  Way to go, RCA.

For a Catalin-cased version of this radio, see the RCA Victor 66X9.
