Dear visitor
Just now you have seen the benefit of a registration
Ondolina or Tubantia receivers with external tubes.

 

 

 
> So the more serial numbers you make available to me,
the more accurate my review of Ondolinas will be.

 

 

 
May I ask you for the SERIAL NUMBER and
the TYPE of your Ondolina or Tubantia for my research
into the production numbers of SBR

 

 
Where can you find the SERIAL NUMBER?
 
Method:
first
remove the second and the third lamp ;
look into the two round holes from the removed lamps;
just between the two lamps you might see a number.
 

 

or  second
remove both screws left and right out of the case;
pull the receiver out at front of the case;
at the metal baseplate a number might be visible,
 

 
or just behind the horizontal metal cylinder.
 

                        ^ Look here

detail of the
aluminum plate
:

 
or third

at the bottom of the case of the receiver (mid back)
     you may see a number on an aluminum plate sometimes.

Note: Check the second as well as the third method, as they may provide different numbers.
In that case the cabinet does not originally belong to the receiver chassis.
Only the number at the chassis is than meaningful.
