Up for auction is a nice vintage 1970's Montgomery Ward "Airline" series 8-Band transistor radio, Model # GEN 1487A.

Radio measures 14"H x 10.5"W x 4.25"D.

The bands this radio contains:  SW, MB, AM, FM, AIR, PB1, PB2, and UHF.

I have refurbished this radio inside (I do this as a hobby for over 30 years).  The switches are clean, there is no static or crackling when using any of the controls.  All bands have been tested and work as far as I can tell (there are not many broadcasts on UHF anymore so I didn't find anything there).  The police bands, marine band and air band depends on the location where you are using the unit.

The short antenna is for local FM stations, the AM antenna is inside the unit and the long antenna is for all other bands.  This is not the original antenna, this was added as part of my re-furbishing of the inside of the unit and functions properly.

The radio needs a good cleaning outside.  The chrome is a little faded and there are paint "specks" on top of the unit.  There is a small crack on the case on the back of the unit and a larger screw has been used to keep the case shut properly.

This unit requires 4 "D" batteries to operate on DC power.  The AC/DC switch is located inside the battery compartment.  The battery compartment is clean and the electrical cord is in good condition.  There is a earphone jack for private listening, however I did not test it.

This radio includes a meter light and the tuning bar has a light at the top that lights when a station is properly tuned in.  There is a flip-up world map with a 24 hour time dial and an explaination of what frequencies each band covers.  The radio has a real good sound overall.

Feel free to ask me any questions about this unit if you feel I missed anything in the description here and I will respond within 24 hours.  While I am not an "expert" on this radio, I try to be as honest and give you as complete of a description as I can.

Thanks for looking and happy bidding :)

Shipping:  If I can ship it faster then the economy rate (I will ask USPS my options at the time of shipping) with the $20.00 I am asking you to pay, I will happily do so and notify the winning bidder.  I ship USPS unless other arrangements are made between the winning bidder and myself.  I will ship the radio the following day (except weekends) after receiving the PayPal payment from the winning bidder and the payment has cleared.

NO WARRANTY WITH THIS UNIT.  RADIO IS SOLD "AS-IS".

I DO NOT SHIP OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES!

I ONLY ACCEPT PAYPAL PLEASE.
