Collins R389 Rick Mish Restored Receiver!
This Collins R-389 radio was purchased from Mr. Rick Mish about 12 years ago. It is
restored, re manufactured
and aligned. It is a beautiful unit. You wont find one nicer.
This is a VLF receiver that covers 15 KC through 1500 KC. It uses a motor to add as a
tuning aid. I have only put a
few hours on the radio since receiving it, as I do not have an adequate antenna for VLF
work. The only flaws are
that there is some minor touch up work on the front panel, and the volume control is a
little scratchy but working
fine. The radio is missing an internal cover. The top and bottom covers are included. Serial
number is 427 (out of
about 800 made). The power cord is included, as well as a complete set of replacement
I will be happy to have the purchaser pick the radio up at my home.
Additional photos available for serious inquiries.
From a non-smoking household. $3000.00 FIRM plus actual shipping. I will include a like-
cabinet for an additional $500.00.
