Hi,

I am looking for a transistor radio from the years 65-66, made in ex-Rhodesia/South Africa.

This radio is a Supersonic Conquest PR80.

If you have one, or know someone who could help me get one, please PM me.

Thanks !

G'day Transistor,

Welcome to the Vintage Radio forums.

Private messaging on these forums is not enabled. All responses to your queries should be here so that all those who are interested in the subject you raised can benefit.

So far, my only knowledge of the availability of this radio are from collectors in South Africa. A member here who collects rare foreign radios may know of a local example though.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

Thanks for your answer Brad.

I don't know many radio collectors from South Africa, as I don't think there is any radio forum based there.

That's why I try to post on important radio forums, such as yours, that may have south-african members.
Would you know any of them ?

Thanks !

I don't know any of them myself unfortunately. I just did a search for the radio you are looking for and found a few links to South African websites however there's only a few and those people may well be either looking for this model too or information about them.

Yes, I have seen that too.
I already have the service manual for it. Just need the radio itself now...
I keep on searching !

Thanks.
