US Navy WWII receiver RBC-6 s/n 111 CRV-46297-A
covering 4.0mc to 27.0mc in 4 bands. Famous WWII
"battleship" radio. This one is gray in the gray
rackmount cabinet. Radio s/n and cabinet s/n match. No
visible modifications-I believe this is entirely
original. Requires external power supply. Dirty.
Untested. As-is. Big and heavy. $320

US Navy WWII receiver RBB-2 s/n 768 CRV-46147 covering
.84mc to 4.0mc in 4 bands. A mate for the RBC-6 radio
above. This one is black wrinkle in the black desktop
cabinet with shock mounts on the bottom. Radio and
cabinet s/n match.  No visible modifications. But the
ballast tube is missing. Requires external power
supply. Cabinet and panel have some paint scrapes.
Dirty. Untested. As-is. Big and heavy. $270

US Navy WWII receiver RBB-1 s/n 189 CRV-46147 covering
.84mc to 4.0mc in 4 bands. A mate for the RBC-6 radio
above. This one is black wrinkle in the black desktop
cabinet with shock mounts on the bottom. Radio and
cabinet s/n match.  Someone has been inside this one.
Many tubes are missing including the ballast tube. The
GAIN control was gone and I replaced it with one from
a parts set, but two connections still need to be
soldered. Lastly, the DC volt meter is bad (stuck on
200V) but I will include a replacement meter from the
same parts unit. So this needs restoration work.
Requires external power supply. Cabinet and panel have
some paint scrapes. Dirty. Untested. As-is. Big and
heavy. $210

US Navy power supply for the above receivers. Black.
Can run two receivers. Has original connectors for the
receivers but the AC connector in the middle has been
removed and a line cord has been soldered in place.
Note that this does not include the cable to connect
the supply to the receivers-I don't have any of those.
Looks okay-some paint scrapes. Untested. As-is. $200.
For sale only with one of the radios above.
