FA: Drake R8B Shortwave Radio Receiver plus VHF

Post by Radioma » Mon, 01 Mar 2004 04:35:39

Drake R8B communications receiver in mint condition. Hardly used.  Has VHF
converter installed to receive 35 to 55 MHz and 108 to 174 MHz.  Includes
serial cable, manual and packed in original box and packing material.
Outstanding selectable filters with synchronus detection. Considered one of
the best BCB AM radios on the market! !

Nice radio, but note that it is local pickup only... (no shipping).

The dissapointing thing here is that I was in Powhaten VA last week for the
first time ever (I live near Boston).  Too late now!

Looks like it's in mint condition too!

I did note that the knobs appear to be shiny (glossy?).  Is
this normal?

No that's not a real Drake knob.  It looks very much like Mike Maghakian's
very nice all-metal replacement R8/R8A/R8B knob.  In fact, I'm almost sure
it is as I have one.

There was an error in the orginal listing.  I will ship within USA and
Canada.  The knob is Mike Maghakian.  I used Turbo Lister and it must have
gone awry.  Thanks for pointing this out.  I will probably relist the
auction.

He never sold it either. Man I really wanted to buy it too but didn't want
to drive that distance to pick it up.
