Product Description

This Collins Round Emblem 51S-1 Communications Receiver is in excellent condition and is Serial number 7651.

It was made in 1971 and the Air force designation is 51S-1F,  1156A/GR.

The front panel is free from any bad marks or scratches, and the chassis is nice and clean.

This one has the original Collins weighted tuning PTO knob.

The original Alignment tool is also intact!

You will also notice the old orange brown colored meter face has been replaced with a new white translucent meter face which looks much nicer than the original 

 This Late serial number receiver, has the dial brake lever and works great on all bands, and modes, with no problems. 

This receiver was recently serviced by James Millsap W9CTO. Jim is one of the best Technicians and has been working on Collins gear for many years.

He tested all the tubes and replaced any that were weak or marginal.

He also checked and replaced the electrolytic capacitors that were not in spec. The Chassis mounted Capacitor can has also been replaced with a new one. All the switches and contacts were cleaned.

He then aligned this receiver so it performs at or better than factor specifications.

I tested it on all bands and it performs great with excellent receive audio.

The Receiver is mounted in a NEW, Nationwide Radio Collins 51S-1 Cabinet and it looks just like the original, with the same Baked on enamel finish and color.

This 51S-1 was commissioned for the Air force  as a 51S-1F. It is basically the same as the consumer 51S-1 and has several factory installed test points.

I will include the late style power cord with puller octal Connector.

This is a great deal on a very clean 51S-1 that has been serviced and aligned.
