For Sale:: My R390A receiver. It has never been in military service. EAC radio.
What you're getting is a very clean, well kept radio. No dust, no rust, not worn out, not repainted. I can email many nice pictures. Heavy Heavy radio. Local pickup in Western Pa. is preferred. I could meet you half way...but I think many folks would like to touch and see before spending big dollars.
You will also receive a spare I.F. module that works. The ballast tubes are the real ballast tubes. You will get spare tubes and there are the original ballast tube as spare. I have a spare power supply chassis. Power transformer and it's rectifier tube sockets. There are spare coils for the RF deck. Not all bands. The military manual is also included
The only mod was to change the local audio to hi-fi using a 7360 tube and changing the output transformer. It was a recognized, accepted mod that was not bastardized into this radio. Everything done proper. The electrolytics on the Audio module were replaced 4 years ago. There are spare rectifier tubes included. No bullshit mods done to the power supply. No solid state rectifiers. The radio has been on 24/7 most of the time on an isolation transformer set for 110VAC!
The radio is not in good frequency calibration. 2kc off. The calibration of the oscillators, I.F., or the PTO has NEVER been touched by any humans. The receive sensitivity is around a microvolt on the lower bands and gets a little better up to 30mhz. I do not have any lab grade sig gens.
Asking $800.00.......you can contact me by looking at QRZd for my email....or encrypted fred...7415 at hotmail dot com
If shipping is important to you; I would be able to ship. The radio and all of the spares mentioned would be crated in wood and shipped by truck by a professional. That would be close to, or near 125lbs. I would not be able to guess shipping. I would call a locksmith, who has shipped an 1800lb A.M. transmitter to West Va, to safely pack and ship your radio. I would not be able to guess shipping. But I am willing to work with you on this part. The selling price is NOT including packing and shipping.
Thanks for looking
