Salora PK, 1937-38

Nordell & Koskinen (owned by Nordell & Laakso from 1936 on) manufactured the first Salora radio in 1937. (The word Salora means that the factory operated in Salo and they made radios.)

Salora PK was a battery-powered receiver with three tubes. They also manufactured a mains powered model, Salora VK. Salora PK’s source of power was a 2-volt accumulator and a 120-volt anode battery. The catalogue states, that “the receiver had accomplished an excellent tuning precision and great sensitivity. The radio was truly fine with a beautiful sound and it was the actual ruler in its price range”.
