Echophone EC-1 (1941-1945)


Echophone EC-1 (1941-1945)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
A WW2 radio with excellent reception on all bands. The dial is beautiful and nicely lighted. I've included an antenna hank for the best reception and a set of antique earphones that do work with the receiver. Fully restored electronically for reliable daily use. The EC-1 was the GI's radio of World War II. It began production toward the end of 1940 and continued in production all through the war. This radio was the only commercial radio that the government allowed to be manufactured during WW2 and they did it for morale purposes; to provide lonely, homesick and bored servicemen with entertainment. These rugged little radios have good short wave circuits so the servicemen and women could listen to shows, music and war news no matter where they were in the world. The EC-1 sold at a "reasonable" price of about $20 (about a month's pay). Many GI's got them either by buying them outright or receiving them as gifts. 11-1/4"W x 8-1/4"H x 8"D.
