I recently bought the above radio, because it has nostalgic value to  
me. One of these was used by the Dutch Resistance during WW II. I was  
born in Holland shortly after the war, but I now live in Alberta,  
I fiend of mine has repaired quite a few radios for me over the past  
several years. He is a retired electronics instructor at a college.  
However, he is unable to repair this particular radio. In one of his  
emails to me he wrote the following:

  "... I put a .002 value capacitor across the crystal pin  socket   
with the crystal  pulled out and then  that oscillator  circuit  will  
free run. I did try that and it would not run
so there is no point in buying a new crystal if the circuit where it  
is going to go  is not working." (end of quote).

The crystal filter is a Bliley crystal filter unit, type CF1 (I?).  
serial # G13801. It is (was) made in Erie, PA
If there is any boatanchor enthusiast, preferably in Canada, that  
would be able to help me out I would greatly appreciate it.
