[ARSCLIST] Radionette Multirecorder... track configuration, anyone?

Dear ARSC list,

The Radionette is a double decker tape recorder that records all the tracks
in the same direction, i.e. you had to spool back between tracks.
It is a Norwegian production, which was mostly sold in Norther Europe and
Great Britain.

There were 3 stages of development:
1. Radionette Multicorder (2-track)
2. Radionette Multirecorder FM (4-track)
3. Radionette Soundrecorder FM(4-track)

Now, we usually number the tracks' physical location on the tape as 1-2-3-4
from top to bottom.

In a conventional 1/3 - 4/2 recording maching, the chronological original
recording (or listening) sequence would be 1-4-3-2.

In the Radionette, however, we found an indication (online) that the
Radionette Soundrecorder FM records in the sequence 1-3-2-4.
(about 3/4 of the way down in

Does anyone know if this sequence is the same for nr 2, the 4-track
Radionette Mutirecorder FM as well? If not, what is the sequence?
