I picked this unusual beast the other day.
Having seen the ad many times while going through Radio and Hobbies I was quite excited.
This was the Test unit that was to be completed as part of the Australian Radio College correspondance course.
Have yet to go over it But it's a great piece of History

Josh that will be good to see, those ads always intrigued me.
Far too busy working 3 jobs and making guitar amps to do it!

I did the Australian Radio College course in the 1960’s and can’t remember having to build anything.
Recently threw away all the paper work which was collated in blue paper folders.
Now I regret tossing it.
Still have the end qualifying certification, which I guess the kids will toss one day.

From what I've read of those courses, especially the American ones, students usually had to construct some piece of test gear -- often a multimeter.

Well, that's a beauty. I wonder if the builder left his mark (name or initials) inside it?
