Availability: 1 in stock
Manufacturer: Roberts Radio

This is a superb example of a compact Roberts RT22 portable transistor radio from the late seventies. The radio has been cleaned and serviced and is in excellent fully working condition. Please see detailed photos to judge condition. The case is finished in dark green leatherette with real hardwood side panels – an iconic design for Roberts. Front and rear grilles are very good with no dents and minimal paint loss. Top dial is clear with two red station pointers that can be moved to indicate your favourite channels. Chrome handle is excellent with no pitting. Aerial is perfect and all push buttons retain their end caps. Volume and Tuning knobs are original with a few marks on the volume cap see photos. The leatherette case is very good with no nicks tears or rips – see photos below. This model has a rotating turntable base for optimum reception.

Sound quality is very clear with decent volume as you can tell from the video of ot working included below.   Operates from a 9v PP9 battery (not included but available from Wilkinson for £2.99).  Weighs in at 1.2Kg unpacked  

Overall a very nice example of a desirable yet useable classic Roberts transistor radio.
