The AM/FM Hunter RP38A was introduced in the early 1970's as an improved version of the RP38 Hunter.
It is a three waveband portable covering the Medium, Long and VHF FM bands.
AM reception is from an internal ferrite rod and there is a 40 inch long telescopic aerial for VHF.
There is a separate perspex covered VHF tuner module.
A special circuit adjusts the operating conditions correctly as battery volts decrease minimizing distortion at low voltages and extending battery life. 1.5 Wats is available from the audio module feeding a large elliptical speaker and there are separate rotary bass and treble controls.
Automatic AFC gives frequency correction and station locking on VHF.
There are sockets for headphones and external or car aerial connection.
The radio is housed in a strong wooden cabinet with black leather trimmings and polished teak ends. It has a strong metal carry handle.
This Hacker Hunter RP38A radio is an original and complete set and is all in excellent cosmetic condition.
It has a bright dial with original knobs and buttons. The handle is complete , the black leathercloth is free from any marks, scratches and tears.
The teak wooden ends are still in superb condition. The original aerial is complete and easy extendable.
As this is a more than 40+ years old used radio some small age related marks are
normal and to be expected.
The Hacker Hunter RP38A is an attractive radio set and it is one of the best sounding radios.
It is very rare to find a radio which is over 40 years old in this condition- a very good example for any transistor radio collectors or someone who likes the real vintage radio quality and amazing sound.
This radio has been fully cleaned and serviced and is not only in stunning cosmetic condition but it is also working very well on all wavebands with smooth and scratch free controls and selector buttons.
The radio requires two 9Volt batteries or will work from an external 18Volt power supply (neither supplied)
