No Reserve!  Someone will win this vintage military issue Majestic radio receiver, why not you?

Up for bids is this vintage R-100 military 'Morale' radio with tubes, being sold as DEAD, UNTESTED, NOT WORKING, AS IS.  I do NOT know the history of this radio, or any details about any past maintenance or repairs, and I have never used it or plugged it in.  I purchased it at a radio swap meet several years ago.  Perhaps someone can use it for a repair project or parts.  From what I have been told by radio collectors and repair techs, these types of radios were referred to as 'Morale' radios when used by the military, and received Shortwave signals as well as AM signals.

The tubes came with this chassis as you see them, and they are untested, so for the purposes of this sale I am calling them DEAD, NOT WORKING.  I do not know if they are good, bad, blown, dummies, or what.  I am adding the make details of the tubes, as somebody will likely want to know regardless of functionality,or even if they are dead.

The tubes are as follows:  25Z6, 25L6, 3Q5, 1LH4, 1LN5 (x3), 1LC6

Again, I am including the tubes BUT I consider them as DEAD, NOT WORKING as I have NO way to test them.

The tuning knob does not turn the tuning indicator on the frequency dial.  The radio has a power cord, the plug is a two-prong ungrounded type, the area where the cord meets the chassis has the outer rubber covering worn away from the cord, and the cord is probably unsafe as is.  There is also some type of wiring harness or setup, and it appears that the radio is designed to be operated on outboard batteries as well as wall voltage--but from the looks of the plugs/attachments for the batteries, I highly doubt that these batteries are available anymore.  There is a layout diagram included with the radio which is a handy reference, attached to the back panel of the radio.  The screws needed to attach the back panel to the radio are missing.  There is rust to the cabinet.  The bottom of the cabinet appears to be relatively good condition on the outside.  Please see photos  I have never plugged in this radio so I do not know if it works.  I DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND that the radio be plugged in, until it has been repaired and restored by a quallified radio repairman.  I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for anyone plugging in this item without being VERY FAMILIAR WITH ELECTRICAL SAFETY and tube electronics, this item likely operated at HIGH VOLTAGES, and plugging this chassis in could cause INJURY OR DEATH--SO UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING and THEN SOME, DON'T DO IT!

Please read the terms of the auction below.

Terms of the auction:

PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. If my description does not give the information that you are looking for, PLEASE ASK BEFORE BIDDING.

This radio receiver is being sold as DEAD, NOT WORKING, UNTESTED, AS IS. No returns, all sales FINAL.

I DO NOT use 'Buy It Now'. NO TRADES! If you want to trade, go to Craigslist, not eBay.

Payment is to be by PayPal ONLY, full payment to be made within 96 hours/4 days. You must have a valid, verified and functional PayPal account. Please DO NOT wait until after the auction to find out if your account works or not. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I only ship to CONFIRMED PayPal addresses. It is the responsibility of the bidder to ensure that they are in compliance. I DO NOT ship to 'friends', 'relatives', or 'alternate addresses'.

I reserve the right to cancel any bid. Fraudulent activity, including feedback extortion, will be reported to eBay immediately.

Final auction price and shipping costs are non-negotiable. NO EXCEPTIONS.

A note about shipping: I do not make a profit from shipping, if the amount quoted by the eBay calculator is more than what the actual shipping and packing costs are, then I will return the excess funds once the item has been shipped. I do not have any control over shipping costs as charged by the carrier, these costs are based not only on weight and size of the packed item, but the DISTANCE that it must be shipped. I no longer use a 'flat rate' amount/quote for shipping large, bulky, and heavy items, as it has been pointed out to me that this system gives a unfair advantage to those buyers who have excess shipping costs covered above and beyond the originally quoted 'flat rate' shipping; and is unfair in comparison to those buyers who are located closer to my location and pay actual shipping costs that were within the originally quoted 'flat rate' fee. I did not in the past make a profit from shipping and I still do not, my policy was/is to refund any received overage in shipping charges then as I do now; and again, I do not make a profit from shipping.

This radio is being sold as DEAD, NOT WORKING, UNTESTED, AS IS, all sales are FINAL, NO returns or refunds. Bidders are responsible for their bids, and are responsible to ask ALL questions BEFORE bidding. Thanks for looking, please check out my other auctions, and Happy Bidding!
