Front View - What a work of art ! [36K]

  • Released who knows when
  • MW waveband. Somehow I doubt it is a superhet.
  • 2 Tr*ns*st*rs + 2 Diodes
  • 1.5V Battery
  • Original cost : Whatever it was it was too much
NOTES I never thought I find something that was more sh*t than the Perdio radio, but behold here it is !

This""radio"" was available in at least two 70's-inspired colours - bright orange and flourescent green (hmmm, nice). The radio is switched on by plugging in its earpiece - no poor quality speakers here ! Wouldn't worry about trying to fine tune the radio using only a small dial (or, according to the manual, "turn the dial for the right tuning") - with perhaps just the one tuned circuit you should be able to pick up most stations without tuning.

I would try it out, but it uses a 1/2 length battery which I don't have (and would no doubt cost more than the radio is worth). I could use my lab 0-350V adjustable supply but that would be risky wouldn't it ... what am I saying, bring on the smoke!
SERVICE DATA Who cares.
CURRENT STATE Complete in original no-expense-spared packaging and including an extensive looks-like-it's-in-English-but-I-may-be-wrong technical manual.
WHERE FOUND Local ye olde shop for a handful of coins. Bought three of the smeggers but fortunately managed to find another mug to unload two of them onto (without even resorting to the scammer's paradise known as Fleabuy).
