First: Consumer product by BELMONT after W.W.II
First: Shirt pocket Superhetrodyne receiver
First: Consumer product using
subminiature tubes

This rare and neat little set has long been sought after by myself and recently won on an eBay auction. I was very fortunate in that it is complete with the original presentation box and paper instructions/owners manual. There is no indication that it was ever used. Features: full 5 tube Superhetrodyne circuit with AVC, 455 KC If's, earphone only operation and a built in antenna (it's part of the earphone wiring). Battery requirement: 1-22.5 volt "B" battery, 2-1.5 volt "A" battery. A true shirt pocket radio measuring just 6" X 3" X 5/8", weight w/o batteries, 10 oz. Be sure and read my article on the
subminiature tube
