Vintage Zenith Trans-Oceanic Wavemagnet tube radio sw multi-band portable H500
Vintage Zenith model H500 transoceanic wavemagnet radio from the early 1950's. This was my father in law's. It has been sitting wrapped on his closet shelf unused for at least the last 50 years. This radio is in as found condition (I would rate excellent for age with no major flaws found) and we will leave cleaning and tweaking to the experts. We have plugged it in to check on function. All seems to be working. We were able to get many stations from all over the world clearly even stumbled on to the Alex Jones show! And this was without having hooked up the wavemagnet antenna included. The only concern found was the button on front marked 4-8 MC is functioning but a little sticky. We are not sure what lubricant to use on it without ruining the electronics, so will leave cleaning and lubing to someone knowledgeable. The original oilcloth cover looks 100% intact with a few minor scuffs which should clean, and all glass is intact and clear. The very long telescoping antenna is all there and functioning. This was a very expensive well made shortwave radio in it's day advertised as the royalty of radios!
And still very functional with a following for them. Here is an unrestored, unmessed with survivor coming from AZ with no rust or corrosion to deal with. Comes with the original operating guide.
