Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and want to say hello to all of you.

I have a question concerning a National RAO receiver. I believe this to be an RAO 6, one of only 200 that were made with the S meter. After 200 they were equipped with the panadapter socket.

Well, this radio is painted gray both inside and out of the cabinet, including the shockmount that came with it. Maybe too nice a job for the navy to have done it? Not wanting to take anything away from the Navy. Just wondering if any of these radios were originally painted gray for the Navy.

The bottom of the IF cans are stamped RAO 19.

I have never seen RAO 19 in literature anywhere and as far as I know they only made up to the RAO 9. My cabinet style is like the RAO's made by Wells GFardner and Natioanl where the top is hinged; the chassis does not slide out from the front.

Just wondered if anyone has any knowledge about the RA"O 19 stamped on the IF cans.

If this was already posted elsewhere on this forum I apologize.

Mike.
Love those radios that glow and are old.

Keep hitting the arrow as there are a few pages on the RAO units.
