Product Description

This Collins 75S-3A Receiver, is in Collector's Quality Condition, and was Fully Serviced 05-13-00This unit is serial number 10080This radio was sent to Western Nebraska Electronics in 01-13-00, for all the service updates.The total cost was a little over $400.00.It has been stored unused for many years. It has never been in a smoking environment and is as clean as a new one.This Radio is absolutely beautiful with no bad marks or scratches. (there is one very tiny scratch on the top left near the front of the top cover that is very hard to see and is not through the paint) There are no other bad marks or scratches on the rest of this radio and it is apparent it was not used very much. The front panel is also very clean.The Chassis is super clean and it is evident that this radio was well taken care of.Everything appears to be original. It has a metal trim ring , and the original aluminum front risers. The metal trim ring is very desirable, as it will not "yellow" with age as the ABS plastic trim rings will do.This receiver is VERY desirable and rare to find in this beautiful condition.I did put this receiver on the air and all functions worked as they should. The received is sensitive, and has excellent receive audio. The PTO operation is smooth.The receiver comes with the original Collins Power cord and I will provide a reproduction of the proper dated manual.I also have a variety of Original Collins manuals on my web site.The 75S-3A receivers have a 200 hz CW filter from the factory and this one has it installed and working.As with most vintage gear, this receiver may benefit with an alignment or tube replacements, but it does appear to be working great as it is.This receiver has all the original electrolytic capacitors. It would be prudent to change them to modern replacements too assure trouble free operation. I have Capacitor replacement kits available and will make one available at my cost if you would like to update this receiver.I am very proficient packing this type of heavy vintage radio gear. The unit will be double boxed and professionally packed to a degree you can not get from normal packing facilities.
