The CR is 4 valve superhet 2 waveband receiver with a self contained tuned frame aerial fitted into a wooden leatherette covered case with a leather carrying handle.
It is designed to work from all dry batteries or direct from the mains. ( note:- suitable batteries can no longer be obtained)
It covers :
- the medium waveband from 192 to 570 meters
- the long waveband from 1200 to 2100 meters.
This Roberts CR has been fully checked, cleaned and serviced and looks great It is working very well on both wavebands from either mains or battery power.
It was tested on the battery setting using an Amplion Convette battery eliminator.
The leatherette covering is free from tears and bad scratches and the whole radio is in excellent condition both cosmetically and electrically. Some minor age related marks are to be expected on a radio of this age.
This is an original and complete 66 years old vintage radio set in original condition and is a great item for the vintage radio collectors.
I have provided lots of clear close up photos of the radio in order to see the cosmetic condition in detail.
Batteries (90 Volt + 1.5Volt) are not supplied but a mains lead is incorporated.
