Manufactured in India
|Photos donated by Jitendra Bhavsar.|
|National Ekco was a radio manufacturing unit in Independent India that collaborated closely with Ekco UK. Most of the components, chassis, kits came from UK and were assembled in downtown Mumbai.|
Model A730 and A731 came in the same year; the difference is that A731 contained a RF stage, the A730 did not. The Model with the RF stage was 26% costlier than the A730. There is definitely some value attached to the RF stage I feel, especially those days. The set lacks ferrite rod antenna resulting in poor MW and MSW. However it provides for coil packs.

When cabinet material or color differences are apparent or suspected in donated photos, I have included additional photos of certain model numbers. Due to time constraints, I must rely entirely on the accuracy of information supplied by contributors with their photographs. As such, no guarantee is made that the model numbers presented here are correct.
