This is a vintage radio with 2 6146B tubes in the final and a 12BY7A tube as the driver. This radio looks good though it has some marks here and there. Considering its’ age, it is pretty nice. It has both the SSB and CW filters installed. The radio covers 80-10 meters minus the WARC bands (12, 17 and 60–it was made before hams were given access to those bands). It receives fine and transmits at reduced power–about 75% of full power appears at the output. The most common cause of reduced power is weakening final tubes. I have never replaced the final tubes in the 2 and a half years I have owned and used this radio so maybe their time has come. Truth be told, 75% output on this thing is probably all most of us will ever need. So you should be good to go for a long time. Also included is the AC power cord and the VFO jumper plug (this little plug is required unless you are using the external VFO). There is no DC cord included (it will run on 12VDC without any external power supply if you have that cord) nor any other accessories. Note that NO MICROPHONE OR KEY is included–you must supply those (the mic plug is the traditional 4-pin style). Lots of guys like the Astatic D-104 mic with this radio, so hat is an option. But most any common PTT hand mic will work. There is a speaker built into the radio but an external speaker was also made for it or connect any 8 ohm speaker. Look at pix and ask questions.
