I again made it to a vintage radio meet, the tri state radio fest near Pittsburgh. While I didn't see any quality audio components at a price I couldn't resist, I was a little tempted by a Nachamichi 2 head cassette deck, and a couple DD turntables, Pioneer PL-400 in box, and a P-mount Technics. I did, however fill a few spots in my radio collection with 3 nice looking radios. First, the battery sets, something older and something newer;
The Zenith D7000Y works, but may need some servicing, and alignment touch up on a couple SW bands. It works on all bands, but dial is slightly off on some, also has speaker rattle, and is missing power cord. The price was right, and it's in fairly nice cosmetic condition. The Freed Eisemann is nicely restored by previous owner, and has new coupling transformers. I will have to do some research on appropriate speaker (I have headphones) and improvise a power source to test it. A previous list of stations says its top frequency was just over 1200khz. At $50, I decided it was worth buying, even if just for looks.
As I am still lacking on sets with FM, I decided to fill one void with something made in Germany, this Grundig 2035.
It supposedly had capacitors replaced, and does work, but after a peek inside, I think some were overlooked and there is more work that needs to be done in near future. Not exactly pristine, but hopefully, I can fix it up a little.
And last, but not least, some other accessories in hammertone grey.
A couple RCA VTVMs and a Eric FM tuner, $20 for all.
