LASTEST UPDATES HERE.
Noveleiro was an affectionate knickname given to household radios by older radio-amateurs in Brazil, since in those olden times, "Radio-Novelas " ( Radio Soap-Operas ) were a very popular form of entertainment.
RABO QUENTE ( HOT TAIL )
Rabo-Quente ( hot tail ) was a term that appeared in Brazil by the end of 1949 and beginning of the Fifties.
It referred to the radios designed for 110 or 220 V AC/DC ( without transformer ).
For the purpose of powering the filaments of the tubes, which were connected in series, a resistance wire, running alongside the power cord was used.
After a couple of hours, the power cord would heat up though, particularly when used with 220 V.
Hence, the "Hot Tail" knickname.
