Another FM only set:

A Silvertone FM only:

A Silvertone 4204 AM/FM
Note AM and FM markings on this set's dial. For AM, the pointer moves and frequency markings stay still. For FM, the frequency markings are on the bottom half of the moving portion of the dial, and these move past a stationary pointer.

This Silvertone and this Sylvania AM radios use 100ma heater string AA5 tubes
