See my other radios too!

The first owner of this radio was a Berlin ham operator, who carried through some modifications, but eventually gave it away to a radio pal in Zeist. The Zeist ham used the set for some time and gave it away to his friend who was a vicar. The vicar bought a better radio, and this one was sold during a fund-rising action.

The bottom of the set is marked "Made in Japan 508"; Fred Mason wrote me to interpret this as month 08 in a year ending in 5. The appearence of the set make 1965 and 1985 unlikely to me.
