We have to clean out my parents house. After turning on the radio, it takes about 10 seconds to begin working. I’m assuming that is the vintage tubes. When I pushed the various buttons on the right, nothing was received, however with none of the buttons pushed, and the antenna up, I received three different a. Stations in the South Central Pennsylvania area. I Truely don’t know any history of this radio. My parents did use it as late as 1975. It hadn’t been turned on for more then 48 yrs. Either to use his parts or to fix yourself. It is in working condition, but will need much work, and some tender, loving care. Please ask any and all questions before purchasing this radio.
