All radios work when shipped unless add states "not tested, or not working."  I will use USPS unless buyer has a preference.  PayPal or money order are the payment options.  I go to great lengths to make sure the set is operating fine when shipped.  If you have an issue, then contact me.  I will refund payment received, less shipping costs, if you are unhappy and the radio is returned.

My website has a little info about me, but basically radios have been a hobby since I was about 13, off and on.  I also volunteer for Maritime Historical Radio Society and repair receivers and transmitter equipment at the National Park Service, Bolinas and Pt. Reyes, California.  I do collect sets, but need to pare down.  I prefer "boat anchors" and have a number of very nice sets from the 1920's to 1960's.  I have a first class FCC license for various classes of equipment, but let it expire years ago.
 

 

Aircastle 136F1T Multiband Portable

NEW!

Aircastle 136F1T Multiband Portable

Five-band radio with 15 transistors. I forgot how cool some of these old transistor sets were. This one works great and has AM broadcast, FM broadcast, Shortwave from 5-12 mc, VHF from 108-135 mc, and public radio from 147-175 mc. All bands work; I got an ambulance call on PRS band and checked all bands via frequency generator and listening test. Rotary selector with a band window, uses four "C" cells or built in AC (switch on side), tone, volume, dial lamp push switch, pull up antenna, tuning and fine tuning, AFC for FM band, head phone jack. Cosmetically good, a couple minor scuffs on leatherette, and silver finish worn in some places around front plate edge. Good Volume and tone, no corrosion inside.  $65.00. (1400077)

Wow! This one sounds amazing. 1960's era portable radio. Uses six "D" cells or a wall wort (included). No battery corrosion in compartment, all functions work well. AM, FM, shortwave (5.8-7.5 MC,) and long wave (150-280kc). Press to light dial, bass, treble, volume, AFC control for FM, pull out antenna. Good cosmetics, almost great. Carry handle/stand, pull up antenna on a swivel. Dark grey and chrome. Substantial build, not a flimsy unit. Truly a nice radio like Blaupunkt built for Porsche and Mercedes.  $175.00. (1400076)

 

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

This is an unrestored Neutrodyne TRF six-tube set, vintage 1926. Missing two lower knobs and all tubes. Otherwise in good condition. Both tuners work. So crack out those 01A tubes and get her going! Nice sloped front. Heavy so shipping will reflect that. 19"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $75.00. (1400070)

 

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" (1930)

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" (1930)

Here is a pretty Swan TRF radio. It was restored years ago and has been in my collection for a while. Cabinet is beautiful, no veneer cracks, chips, missing pieces. Chassis was rebuilt and I just dusted it and fired it up. Works fine, needs external antenna wire to get stations. Volume/off control, tuning and tone. six-tube set. Good volume and tone. It's a smaller cathedral with light toned woods. so it stands out nicely from the dark, somber run of the mill sets.  $495.00. (1400075)

 

Power Tronics "Money Talks" AM/FM Transistor

Power Tronics "Money Talks" AM/FM Transistor

AM/FM transistor "dollar bill" novelty radio. The cool thing is: loud volume activates George's mouth! There is a transducer in the audio circuit that moves the lips. Works fine, new alkaline DuraCell batteries. There is a black FM extension antenna and it does get FM if a local station. PowerTronic "Blabbermouth" is the brand. Probably 1970s-80s era. It is in very good condition, no cracks or chips, some very light scratching on left side of the bill.  $40.00. (1400049)

Zenith H-500 Trans-Oceanic(1951)

NEW!

Zenith H-500 Trans-Oceanic(1951)

Here is a very nice H500 that is as old as I am! Overall mechanically and electrically sound. I replaced the Bumblebee caps, some resistors, all tubes are premium, even the 1L6. Included is a spare 1U4 and 3V4 and all the service data. Alignment has been done and its a pretty hot receiver even on the whip antenna. Great tone, all controls cleaned and lubed. Tuning is accurate. Those pushbutton band switches have been carefully cleaned and the felt bumper strips are all in great shape. The "leatherette" is good, slight wear, but not a "shoe polish special". No rips or missing parts. The suction cup accessory is missing, but they never work anyway!  $185.00. (1400078)

 

Zenith Royal 1000-1 Trans-Oceanic

Zenith Royal 1000-1 Trans-Oceanic

Nice set. Turret cleaned and all circuits aligned. Has battery holder, and rare enough, all the service/owner literature. Included is a wall wort. Plays well, sensitive, great tone. There are a couple cosmetic issues: two dings in the map chart cover, and the top piece over the dial is cracked and missing a small piece. Black covering is great, chrome is good. A great Christmas present!  $145.00. (1400074)
