1970's Grundig Transistor 3005 / Ocean Boy 810 -
LW/MW/FM/SW x 4 Portable Transistor Radio
Dimensions: L - 410 , W - 110 , H - 240 mm
The Grundig Transistor 3005 is a high quality, very large and heavy radio set and has a superb design. It is similar to the Ocean Boy 210 but the Transistor 3005 was made for sale outside of Germany.
The Transistor 3005 has 6 tuning bands:-
VHF/FM 87.5 - 108 MHz (covering the full FM band)
LW 145 - 400 kHz
MW 510 - 1620 kHz
SW1 1.6 - 4.8 MHz
SW2 4.5 - 12.1 MHz
SW3 12.1 - 20.0 MHz
SW4 19.5 - 30.0 MHz
There are eight pre-set FM stations or FM can be manually tuned. Band spread fine tuning is available on AM. The tuning dial has normal and switchable illumination.
There are separate rotary bass and treble controls and a tuning/battery condition meter. There is a a 5 pin DIN socket for aux or tape in/out , a headphone socket and a car aerial socket. Separate sockets are also available for external short wave and FM aerials.
Aerial selection is by a top mounted push button switch.
As usual I am providing lots of good clear photos so that you can see the cosmetic condition of this.
This is a rare radio in very good cosmetic condition and great working order. As this is a more than 40 years old set some age related marks are to be expected.
The radio comes complete with a copy of the Grundig service documentation. Normal reception for Short Wave and VHF is from an extra long 43 inch two part swivel base telescopic aerial, MW and LW reception is from the built in ferrite rod aerial. The telescopic aerial is straight and fully extendable.
All controls are present and working fine - with no noise or crackles.
This superb high quality radio works very well on all wavebands and sounds fantastic with 7 watts of audio output from its two loudspeakers.
It can be powered by either a 9 volt PP9 battery or from an external 9 volt power supply (neither supplied).
