    This radio was given to me along with several other radios in spring of 2008. After sitting in my radio storage area for over a year, I realized that I was never going to do anything with it. It ended up being dontated to silent auction at the IHRS spring swap meet in Kokomo, Indiana in 2009. A fellow collector purchased it from the auction, and promply restored it back to working condition, complete with one of his reproduction batteries. Below: The new owner posted a YouTube video of the 6G801 operating.
