As I've mentioned in the past, I don't collect transistor radios per se. However, over the past 30+ years of radio collecting, I've amassed 4 or 5 dozen of them. Recently, I've been going through them...most still need to be cleaned/polished including this one. Some work, some don't. A few have caught my attention all over again. This is one of them. I had to kludge up a battery (a few watch batteries with spacers that would fit into the battery compartment). What a very strong performer this tiny radio (1" x 2" x 3" w/14" fully exteded antenna) turned out to be!

Very nice! I had no idea they made a Micro AM/FM receiver.

That's one I've really liked, but typically sell high on Ebay...

Good to know that they work and perform well as my AM-only has bad ceramic tuning cap...
