Military Navy WWII RBB-2 and RBC-1 Receivers. These
are WWII Navy shipboard radios covering 0.5-4mc and
4-30mc respectively. Made by RCA dream team. With one
matching power supply, 2 cables to go from supply to
radios and original AC power cable. With original RBB
and RBC manuals and copy of Coupling Kit CN-10563
manual for panadaptor (not included). Both radios and
the supply are in very sharp original condition, with
all internal covers and all tubes including the goofy
ballast tube. Cosmetically, these are very good with
some paint chipping around the panel edges and small
scrapes here and there. The knobs are somewhat faded.
Both the cabinets and the radios have their original
tags and the cabinet s/n’s match the radio s/n’s. I
have a bunch of spare metal tubes to go with these and
a few odds and ends spare parts. $1050 for everything.
I would separate them for an excellent offer but I
will not sell the cables separately. Prefer pickup in
Pittsburgh PA but I will ship them for $195 additional
handling and packing materials cost, plus the actual
shipping cost. Shipping may take as long as 30 days
due to my busy schedule.

RME 69 with DB-20 preselector. Original and nice. The
DB-20 is ex-military and has a mil tag on it. The
radio is a civilian unit I think and has no tag. Both
units look very good. The radio works passably.
Preselector is untested. $299/both

Drake DL1000 Model 1551 1.5KW Dry Dummy Load. Can take
500 watts for 40 seconds. On Workbench. $55

Thanks for looking.
