The Philco model 37-620 series (1936-37) is the follow-on to the earlier model 620 series (1935-36). Like the 620 series, the 37-620 series has a 6-tube 3-band chassis, but is updated with octal tubes. Band coverage is BC, 2.3-7.4 MHz, and 7.35-22 MHz. There are two versions of the chassis, marked with code 121 and code 125, with minor circuitry differences between the two (see schematics).
Stein mentions this model as a two bands radio.
