This is a Vintage Sylvania TR40 Shortwave Radio.
This radio has best tested and powered up.
It is in Solid Physical condition. It works on Batteries (not Included). Knobs and dials are responsive. The Earphone jack is functional.
This radio was originally manufactured in 1964. It still picks up radio stations clearly. There are somes sings of wear. Two silver knob covers are missing. There is some static on the volume and tone dials. The volume must be turned up all the way to hear a  low sound. The radio can be heard throught the earphone jack just fine.
With a bit of tinkering this would be a great vintage unit to be put to work or to add to your collection.
