Okay, okay! I've been offering this old radio for $5 for what seems like years. Nobody wants it for $5. I can take a hint. Now, I'm offering it for free.
When you come to look at this item, if you bring any pets with you then please leave them in the car. I don't allow animals in my office.
The radio is a vacuum tube model with a plastic case. It has three bands, labeled "INTERNATIONAL SHORT WAVE", "METERS", and "STANDARD BROADCAST". I don't know how old it is. I didn't see a serial number on the radio, although there might be one.
The radio is in poor to maybe fair condition. There is a crack on one corner of its plastic case. One of the snap buttons is missing from the back, at the cracked corner.
I most recently testing this radio way back when I first posted it for sale for $5. It's been sitting on a shelf since then. I don't know if the behavior described below is still true. Maybe the thing completely died on the shelf. I don't know. For free you don't get refills.
Anyway, these are the previous test results. The band switch is very noisy when clicked. The radio works to the extent of producing static, but I couldn't verify if it will actually receive any stations because the tuner knob doesn't cause the tuner to work. I don't know what's disconnected. Looking in the back, it appears that the tuner string is still in place. I didn't try connecting the radio to an external antenna, because of the problem with the tuner.
