I am looking for equipment, pictures, parts, or anything that can get me
some info on the RCA AVR 7-D aircraft receivers. I am restoring a 1939
Beechcraft D-17S Staggerwing and it list that it came out of the factory
with this type of receiver. I would like to duplicate (3D print) the
faceplate to hide modern radio equipment behind. This restoration is going
to be as authentic as possible, but a flying aircraft. The project
completion is to be within the next few months. I would love to get one of
these in hand to do so. Any help here with this?
Also, a much more difficult task is trying to find out just what a Branson
transmitter was. I am coming up with nothing about what this was or looked
like. Any info there? Smithsonian?
Thanks for any help or points in the right direction,
