RCA 24BT-2 Farm Radio (1940)


RCA 24BT-2 Farm Radio (1940)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Popular wisdom in antique radios is that it's no use listing battery radios. Nobody wants them because they don't want to fool with the batteries. I have solved that problem by building a regulated AC supply for this otherwise very nice RCA 24BT-2. The finish appears original and is fairly nice, with a few mars and dings from 81 years in the business. I finished the restoration started by a previous owner. I had to make up a power harness with an original plug. You can unplug it from the power supply and use a battery if you want. Capacitors replaced by previous owner. I gave it a full set of high testing tubes and a full alignment Receiver sensitivity is fairly good. Requires an external antenna. Cool shutter mechanism connected to the on-off switch to indicate power is on. Unlike regular AC radios, battery sets have almost instant warmup for you impatient types. All in all it's a fairly nice radio. 18"W x 11"H x 9-1/2"D.
