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)
