Description:

LW MW VHF SW and Tropical Band Communications receiver. Designed for international use, this radio covers the main broadcasting bands using a dedicated 11 shortwave band selector switch. Also included is a Tropical Band used for bradcasting mainly in the tropical areas of Africa. The radio can be fitted to a vehicle and an eliptical speaker provided high quality sound output. This model was seen as a direct competitor to the classic Zenith Transeoceanic world-band receiver from the USA.
