Meck CD - 500 ( 1948 )
Click for larger photo.
Made in 1948, this radio uses
five tubes and receives AM.
When I first spotted this miserable
thing in my favorite flea market, I passed it up. Later on the seller
was obviously wanting to get rid of his junk, so he dramatically
lowered his price on this radio to just a few bucks. Since the parts
are at least worth that, it followed me home. I ended up dontaing this
to the silent auction at the May 2009 IHRS swap meet.
