This Collins 51J-4 Communications Receiver, is in Excellent Cosmetic & Working Condition, and would be a fine addition to any station and in particular, The Collins A-Line.
The receiver is very clean and has the bottom cover intact. It does not have the top dust cover but works well without it.
It is part of a collection from a friend of mine and has been working with no trouble.
All the Three original filters are intact and working well.
This receiver has a plug in chassis mounted capacitor. It is original and if you want to update it to a new one, I have them in stock and will offer one at a discount to the purchaser of this 51J-1
I have also included the rack mounting screws and washers.
The 51J series of receivers first appeared in 1949 and over the years improvements were incorporated into newer versions. The 51J4 version was manufactured from 1959 to 1964 and was the last and best model produced.
The Collins 51J-4 is a general coverage communications receiver covering 550 kHz to 30.5 MHz in AM, CW and MCW modes. This receiver is designed for mounting in a standard 19 inch rack. Requires a speaker. A tabletop cabinet was available as an option.
