Zenith Royal 1000 "Trans-Oceanic" (1958)


Zenith Royal 1000 "Trans-Oceanic" (1958)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
These radios were conceived in 1942 by Commander Eugene F. McDonald, president of Zenith. He wanted a portable radio he could use on his boat for entertainment, news, weather, marine shortwave as well as international stations. The Trans-Oceanic was a hit, and Zenith produced them from 1942 to 1981. The Royal 1000 is a seven-band (SB,SWx6) nine-transistor radio. It is the first "solid state" Trans-Oceanic. We checked out the transistors. We replaced all of the capacitors and checked the resistors. The controls have been cleaned and lubricated. The leather protective case is soft and pliable with all of the stitching intact. The original logs and chart are present and unmarked. A twelve volt adapter has been added in place of the battery box. The internal antenna and the hard-to-find remote antenna is included. This radio was owned by Capt. Robert A. Hunt when he was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington and is clearly the cleanest Royal 1000 we have ever seen! 13"W x 10"H x 5"D.
