I thought I would show off my Christmas present which was one big surprise. I have most of the tube TO’s, but never could find or afford the Military version. It was restored by a person in 96 or at least that is what is written on one of the caps. Worked fine and a visual inspection and voltage check showed everything is good. The cabinet needed some GoJo which helped quit a bit. The knobs were wrong and even slipped on the volume control and the AC plug was wrong. The knobs I had, but the AC plug took some time. It comes with 2 fuses that slide into it. In the process of looking, I came across a headset that looks like original. It cleaned up better than I thought it would and in the process I noticed the earpiece is 2 electromagnets with a sheet of metal over it instead of paper. The nice surprise is that it works.
It now sits on a shelf with a A600 on one side and a A600L on the other. It looks cool with the 3 different covers.

Very nice! Glad to see you were able to add one to your collection. I also found a set of Zenith headphones that seem to be the right vintage to go with my 520A. My TO collecting hobby is on a bit of a hiatus, but I still enjoy having the 520A as part of my small collection.

That is a nice example of the radio. That is one I also would like to own.. When I have money I can not find one when I find one I am broke. I hate to charge. Tom
