radio was purchased at the Louisville Hamfest on September 8th, 2007.
It was bought from a fellow radio collector for the mere price of
$20.00. This radio has obviously been well cared for it's entire life,
as everything was original and in great condition, with the exception
of a torn grill cloth.
After a good cleaning, a new grill cloth, and the
chassis being overhauled, this is not a bad little receiver. The only
problem was with the tuning drive, which uses a two speed shaft, with 3
small ball bearings as idlers between the two shafts.. The tuner was
slipping, but the application of some thick white grease to the
bearings fixed it right up. Below
