Hi Guys Smile
I picked up one of these from eBay. It was sent from US, and in really good nick for it’s age.
It came with headphone, and for the video, the headphone is near the mic for audio coupling.


Cheers, Brek.

Hmmm! Is there some confusion between radioactivity & radio-activity, they are different.

This one smells more like a valve radio than a valve radio Smile
I can’t believe it has anything to do with decaying biological matter.
It’s chassis has been sealed in this metal box, and when it’s opened, the old electronics smell is potent.
