The National Panasonic Radio

The National Panasonic Model RE-784A is a vacuum tube AM/FM table radio from the post-war era (1960s) manufactured by National Panasonic (defunct, now Panasonic). The miniature tube-based circuitry follows the "All American Five" tube design, which allowed a more compact footprint of the radio; suited for sitting atop a fireplace mantle or to be mounted under a kitchen cabinet. One feature of the FM band for this radio is AFC tuning, that allowed the listener to "lock-in" an FM station without having to worry about station drifting or drops in audio volume associated with FM station tuning.
