The Radio gods have SMILED UPON ME!!!

1957 Motorola with military "Tinkertoy" module. (Correction - WBZ Boston is only 550 miles from me, not 700. Still a great dx from this 61 year old cold warrior.) Note the "Conelrad" civil defense triangles on the tuning dial.

1. Sweet find!

Completely different subject, but the AM only OEM Motorola radio in my 69 Jeep is old enough to have the two CONELRAD markings on the dial.

2. That is awesome!



Probably pulls in like a mother, too!


I overlooked something about this set - the covering is real blue leather, and the trim and faceplate are real brass. The cord is white.

Bearing in mind the "tinkertoy" module in this was a Navy invention.

The video doesn't do it justice, the colors are eye popping beautiful.
