In 1991, inventor Trevor Bayliss was watching a television programme
which covered the spread of the disease Aids in Africa, exacerbated by
the difficulty in educating the population who had no access to radio
or television. With many of the population without mains electricity and
too isolated to even use batteries for a radio, Trevor Bayliss came up
with the idea for a clockwork powered radio.
|SERVICE DATA||Nope. Not needed.|
|CURRENT STATE||Being new old stock it is in excellent fully working condition.
The set runs for about 30 minutes off of a single "wind" of 60 turns and the sound quality is as good. Living in a strong signal area I can't comment on the set's sensitivity.
|WHERE FOUND||September 2002 N.V.C.F. for £25.|
