Pye Q3 (1959) Early version (SOLD)

The transistor Q3 concept is based on the  P123BQ design and was used through the Q range, the difference being on styling only. This radio was first produced in 1959, and is of the first series as seen internally with the pye yellow circle transistors , these were identified  by little coloured circles on the transistor side enclosing a number from 1 - 5 indicating if the transistor is for I.F use or mixer etc. The styling has a concept from the Pye P114BQ valve jewel case radio, in two ways, first the chrome body, no on/off switch, but will operate as soon as the lid is opened, so if anything a transistor upgrade of there popular model. The advantages were of course no requirement for two batterys as this now requires the PP9 only.The condition is very good with only some slight wear to the case where a slight inpact was done , though really not visible under normal use, the handle is perfect and of course importantly the radio works very well and 57 years old has never needed any replacement components. These radio's will become quite collectable in the future as Pye by 1966 could no longer compete with cheap imports.

The radio comes complete with the battery and 1 years gurantee

Close up of the chassis, as can be seen the Pye yellow circle transistors are in place even on the push pull audio output stage as per the original P123BQ models.

Roberts R200 (31.12.1963) (SOLD)

A fine example of the Roberts R200, which also includes the carrying case and the guarantee card dated 31/12/63.

The Roberts radio's at this period were more in demand than the early Hackers, but as like all these things as they developed into the 70's onwards the radio's were imported and the standard and quality fell.

This model was first introduced in February 1960 and cost £14 6s 0d plus the old version of VAT (purchase tax) and is a two band Medium Wave and Long Wave portable receiver powered by one PP9 9.0 Volt battery, perhaps another reason at the time against the Hacker RP10 which requires two PP9's.

This radio just required one AF117 to be replaced due to low sensitivity in the first I.F stage and a couple of de-coupling components and works perfectly. The case condition is perfect, not a mark on it and only the carrying case shows some wear to the handles but still usuable, that with the purchase date makes this a fine collector piece that you can use every day. Comes complete with 12 months guarantee and battery

With rear cover opened revealing the Roberts R200 chassis, very clean inside and the  de-coupling capacitors replaced as well as the first I.F transistor can just be seen., so after 53 years of service that was the only components needing changing.

The styling of these radio's have shown that this now retro look still works.
