Here it is general electric collectors! It’s the “atomic 440″ from 1954. It has the original knobs and back. The cabinet has a very small ding and small scrape at the two top corners, but it is still crack free and has been polished with my 4 step process that brings out the original factory finish. With its marbled bakelite cabinet and large, brightly lit dial with gold trim, it has a stunning look. Check out the photos! Fm uses the power cord and also has terminals on the back for an extra fm antenna. It easily picks up stations up and down the dial. It also has a phono jack on the back to allow you to play your mpeg player, ipod, etc. Thoroughly bench tested for a minimum of ten days, this unique radio is ready for you to use and enjoy. Since it is fully restored you will want to listen to it every day! I went through the chassis and replaced all of the electrolytic (filter) capacitors, the major cause of hum. I then replaced all of the wax/paper capacitors. The resistors were then checked and any more than 20% of their original value were replaced. All of the tubes were tested. Using my precision 612 tube tester and one was replaced. The dial light bulb was replaced with a new correct bulb. The original dial cord is in great condition, so i modified the plug so it is now polarized for your safety. The volume control, band switch, tone control and tuning capacitor were lubed so they now operate smoothly and quietly. Ge used an unreliable selenium rectifier in this radio. As they get old, these rectifiers tend to fail and burn up. I replaced it with a silicone diode for safety and reliability. I then carefully cleaned and polished the chassis to a pleasing luster. He intermediate and radio frequency circuits were aligned to their peak utilizing my hp 8601a rf sweep generator and my leader ls8050 oscilloscope. This will be a great addition to anyone’s collection. Contiguous 48 states only. If you are in. Or out of the contiguous 48, please wait for my invoice with the correct cost. Please note: i will pack it well so that it will arrive undamaged. 13.5 x 8.1 x 7.3 inch.
