Hacker RP38A (18th July 1972) Original Hacker box
This model with the same styling from the 1969 model RP38 with Teak sides and with the mesh grill grill. There were a few cosmetic changes with these models, this one has the later style tone control knobs. One of the most popular of the Hacker series of radio's, it might be due to its slighter reduced size compared to the Sovereign , but still offering that Hacker punch from the elliptical 8" by 5" loud speaker when it comes to the audio quality. The revised model (A) offer's seperate bass and treble controls as the Sovereign
This radio serial number 33917 is a nice example with perfect good teak sides, the top dial plate is in first class condition , not uncommon with this model, the grill is made from pressed aluminium and is very prone to marking or denting,this one is very good.All three feet are present. The only thing that require replacement was the telescopic aerial. This was owned by one family from new and being stored in its original box, serial number confirms this, hence condition.
The radio has an additional circuit minimizing distortion at low battery voltages, and on this A model the facility for an external supply needed. The radio covers the Medium Wave and Long wave broadcast bands and VHF 87.5 - 101 Mhz. The radio comes complete with 2 PP9 batteries and 1 years gurantee for ease of mind.
