RGD consol radio type 628 - please note this is a DC radio with a converter.

I have been given an RGD 628 DC radio in very reasonable condition - no woodworm or damp damage. It was designed for DC mains but has been fitted with a small rectifier assembly for operation on AC (not tried). This uses a selenium rectifier and could be custom or could be supplied by an RGD dealer - no idea.

£15 ono to the Dulwich museum secures this what must be fairly rare set. 4 wavebands with tuned RF stage and variable IF response and is complete with all its valves.

A good looking, Art Deco set which would grace any 1930s collection.

It's yours Luke. There seem to be no other takers. Whereabouts do you live? The size precludes postage etc. so collection would be the best. As you know, I have retired an am more-or-less confined to barracks so a pick-up at any time is OK.

This radio is still available - for a short while! Unless it is claimed (foc - forget about the donation) within the next couple of weeks, it will have to go down to the tip. So please, if anyone would like it, just drop me a PM.

Not a bad looking set!

The RGD has now been rehomed so this thread will be closed.
