Truly a beautiful vintage tube radio. This radio was made in 1945.
The big glass dial bar is in excellent condition and the slide station indicator works well with no issues. The radio has rounded corner edges, framed in speaker grill, and a built in factory "Loop" antenna that receives stations very well.From left to right the knobs are : On/Off/Vol - Tuner - Band Selector. The radio plays very well with no issues. The three knobs have been cleaned, polished, and resealed. There are new audio and filter capacitors, new dial lamp, and new AC cord. Would be a great radio for the collector or for that special place in the home or office. Thank you for stopping in and please take a look at my other radio's listed. I was just contacted by another radio enthusiast and he informed me that he has the exact radio. I would like to share his knowledge with you as well.
This is the RCA model 18T. The last position on the Band Selector Switch is for use of the Push Buttons once you adjust the individual trimmers to your local stations. Also stated that this is a powerful radio.
