Admiral YG703

Admiral YG703

This is a very basic, but clean example from the early 1960s. Bottom label is missing, so determining the model number required some research. One tiny chip can be seen in the photos. A four-tube superheterodyne, it has reasonable sensitivity, and would be a perfect ballgame or news/talk radio for a kitchen, workshop, or garage. The four-tube design might have only marginal performance in a basement unless you are in an area with good signal strength. There is no provision for an external antenna. It has been fully serviced (new capacitors, resistors checked, tubes tested and replaced as necessary, and aligned).  $45.00. (1530010)

 

General Electric P-808A (1959 or 1960)

General Electric P-808A (1959 or 1960)

This little battery powered solid state unit was offered by GE in 1959 and 1960. This radio has surprisingly good sensitivity and sound quality for an early solid state unit. This radio is a superheterodyne design using five transistors. It has a permanent magnet speaker typical of the era. It is powered by a 9 volt battery. Originally, this radio was powered by a "266" type battery. The "266" battery is very expensive to get these days, so this radio has been converted to operate using a modern 9 volt battery. The connector has been changed to the modern style and a holder has been glued into the cabinet using industrial adhesive. All electrolytic capacitors have been replaced and the radio has been aligned. As shown in the pictures, the cabinet is in very good condition. Any questions, just ask!  $50.00. (1530017)

Greg Plant's Radio Attic Terms of Sale
  • Payments are accepted through PayPal.  Credit cards can be used to pay with PayPal.
  • I stand behind my work.  I offer a 30 day guarantee to the original buyer on any radio sold through the Radio Attic.  If you are not satisfied with your radio, I will offer a refund once the radio is shipped back to me in the same condition it was in when I shipped it.  If you purchase a radio from me and then resell it, any guarantee becomes your responsibility.  I will not be held responsible for the condition of a radio that I did not pack for shipment.
  • Every radio I sell is double-boxed with thick layers of bubble wrap for shipment.  This is not something I will "negotiate" about, since it is the only way to ship a vintage radio with a reasonable expectation of a safe journey to your door.  The extra bulk and weight add to the shipping cost, but safe shipment is best for both the buyer and the seller.
  • I will ship my radios anywhere in the continental US for $25.  This sounds expensive, but there is absolutely no profit being made on shipping.  Properly packing and shipping a delicate and sometimes heavy item simply is not cheap.
  • My goal here is not only to sell radios, but to have lots of customers who are eager to buy a second radio from me based on their experience with the first one.
  • I appreciate you taking the time to look at my radios for sale and I welcome any questions you may have. Just drop me an email!

... a Greg's Radio Attic Testimonial
  • I've purchased two radios from Greg, and couldn't be happier with them or with the service provided by Greg. Not only were the radios exactly as described, they arrived very quickly, and were perfectly packaged. Also, Greg was very helpful with the questions I had, and answered my emails quickly, and pleasantly, and is very nice to deal with. It's a nice way to conduct business, and harkens back to the "old days"-when many of these radios were brand new! I plan on purchasing a few more radios, and wouldn't hesitate to buy them from Greg. Thank you for the great radios, the great prices, and the great service-all are appreciated! -- Tim R.
