YOUTUBE VIDEO here. I live in rural Connecticut and there's only one radio station that comes in loud and clear depending on the day.
DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by RCA Victor in 1950's excellent working condition. Cabinet is original pink color and white. The front white grill was very yellowed so I had to help it out by painting the grill white. It just needed a little help. Sorry, I gotta make it perfect. The pink back is not yellowed at all. All original factory molded colors. The front aluminum metal trim is in great condition. No cracks on the top! No cracks, chips, repairs or missing material anywhere on cabinet. Knobs are original and securely attached. Volume knob has no cracks but it is missing its center metal cap insert. The volume knob is discolored and has yellowed. This radio is almost 60 years old! Dial light lights up! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is securely attached. The power cord is original and good working condition. No breaks or fatigue by the interconnect base. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment no pets. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage!
