Vintage Allied Knight R100 HAM Radio Receiver & Speaker 1959
Allied Knight R100 Ham Radio Communications Receiver and matching speaker. This is one of the first R100s from about 1958-1959. Its amazing it is still working. Receiver was tested and receives on all 4 bands with a simple 30ft wire antenna. The controls were cleaned quickly for testing only. All controls are functional. Anyone who purchases this should go through them again, and lubricate all shafts etc. Meter is also functional. One bulb was out and it has been changed with the proper bulb. I do not see any modifications (See photos of inside top top and bottom). Some of the lettering on the faceplate is worn from use.
We are including a copy of the manual. The item obviously shows use. The hard to find matching speaker works fine. The speaker grill's thin plastic perforated material is cracked (see photo) from age. It just dries out. I strongly suggest the user of this radio understand the basics and be willing to step through the manuals alignment procedure if you desire a fully operational unit. It does operate as is but it has been sitting for many years. The manual includes a nice detailed instruction diagram for your own antenna made from simple materials.
