I bought a Wards 93BR-1201A from a fellow ham, repaired a ton of problems and it works like a charm. The schematic I have is the old Rider series but it doesn't show an external antenna. What kind of antenna did this series of radio use? I found two wires from the antenna tuning coil and assume (wrong word here) that the high side goes to an antenna and the low side may be ground. Or it could have been connected to a loop.

Anyone with knowledge of this set? BTW, I can't believe how sensitive this set is even without an antenna.

Don't know and I suspect your guess is as good as mine. Out of curiosity, what does the schematic show? Does it show a loop or just an aerial sign?

I have lots of tube radios with built-in antennas and lots without. Shortwave models usually have connections for external antennas and medium wave 520-1610kHz broadcast band radios usually have loops. But TransOceanics have both, a telescoping antenna for SW and a loop for MW broadcast band as well as external connectors. And I have some AM-only (520-1610) that have only an external connector for an antenna, without a loop. Best antenna for those is a few loops around a shoebox.
