Drake R8A Receiver

$650.00 None Excellent
Description:
Still available. Up for sale is my excellent condition Drake R8A desktop communications receiver. The cabinet is in very nice condition, though not showroom new of course. This particular receiver has a serial number of 6J12930031, indicating it was manufactured in October of 1996. It is fully operational and I had it up and running just prior to posting this ad. All controls function as they are intended to and it has excellent audio and the display is crisp and bright. In the spirit of disclosure there is a diagonal scratch on the display bezel about 1/3 of the way in from the right hand side (see picture). It does not interfere with viewing during normal operation, but it is there. This radio has an excellent reputation and deservedly so. It is a serious receiver for the serious SWL'er and is a particular favorite of MW DX'ers because of its high-Q, 8-pole, electronically switched IF filter providing 5 bandwidths. Below are many of the features of this fantastic receiver. I have never been disappointed with its performance, and I can't imagine the new owner will be either. Will be shipped double boxed, and includes the operator's manual. It also has an upgraded heavier weight metal spin main tuning knob. Asking $650.00 with payment via PayPal, and that includes shipping to the lower 48 and I also absorb the PayPal fees. Any questions are welcomed and thanks for looking. Not looking for any trades.
