General Electric M-81 tombstone (1935)


General Electric M-81 tombstone (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This tombstone is huge! one of the biggest table radios I have ever seen. It sounds like a console! Eight tubes, five controls, four bands. It plays loud and clear; all bands respond, but since I can't receive SW here I used my signal generator to calibrate it on the SW and LW bands. I have never seen a home set like this with a band below the broadcast band; this one has a band called "X" that is 140-410 KC. I have no idea what was ever broadcast there but it picks up the genny. All resistors and caps have been replaced as well as the line cord and speaker cable (new cloth covered cords), and there is a plug on the speaker to make maintenance easier. It has a new grille cloth, and new rubber mounts on the tuning assembly and the chassis. Also I already installed an aux input jack so you can play your iPod, cell phone or even a cassette deck through the radio. The cabinet is refinished in satin lacquer. 20"H x 17-1/2"W x 13-1/2"D. It weighs 42 lbs now but it will be about 50 lbs when double packed in an oversized box.
