This Drake 2-C, 5 Band Amateur Receiver, covers 3 to 30 mhZ, and is in Excellent Condition. It has a late S/N 3188.
NOTE: I have the correct mode switch knob which I will include.
I tested this unit on the air and it is working as it should with no apparent problems.
The Cabinet is in great shape with no bad marks or scratches, The chassis is super clean and shinny. The front panel looks nice.
I am selling this beautiful receiver as is as described for the family of a silent key.
As with most vintage gear it may benefit from an alignment or tube replacements but it seems to be working fine as it is.
The Drake 2C amateur receiver is designed for reception of most amateur bands in the range of 3 and 30 MHz. The receiver coverage is in five bands. Supplied coverage includes: 3.5-4, 7-7.5, 14-14.5, 21-21.5 and 28.5-29 MHz. Optional accessory crystals provide 500 kHz incremental coverage in the range of 3 to 30 MHz. They plug into the left side panel of the radio near the 1/4 inch headphone jack. Modes of reception include USB, LSB, CW and AM. Three bandwidths are available: 0.4, 2.4 and 4.8 kHz (@-6dB). Sensitivity is less than 0.5 uV for 10dB signal plus noise to noise on all bands. Stability is 100 Hz after warm-up. This radio is a great match with the Drake 2NT transmitter.
