FS: PRE-WWII US ARMY RADIO RECEIVER & TRANSMITTER BC-148 / SCR-131

Post by kitrebel » Thu Jan 10, 2019 1:38 pm

Hi All,

Very nice condition for its age and IMO an attractive piece of history of US military comms!
It comes with two canvas bags and I have also a well made repro loop antenna to go with the set.
$800 plus shipping for all.
Please send me a PM if interested

Identification tag, serial number is the same as the case...
Contract date was 1941, but the actual design was from the 1920s...
