Hacker RP32 Marine Herald (1966)
This must be the rarest of all the Hacker radios , only a couple have ever been seen, and the Dealers I know who sold Hackers have never seen one ,when first produced sales were so small hence no information about them or Hacker service information.
This radio was purchased in Norfolk from Hughes radio, the plate is still attached to the radio on the left hand side by the chassis. Everything was needed to bring this radio back to working condition, the 3 waveband switches were jammed and had to be dis-assembled , all the transistors have been replaced, the first I.F coil had gone open circuit and a number of electrolitic capacitors as standard required replacement. The tuning dial plate has been re-polished, the Chrome control knobs are in first class condition . The radio was being cleaned as the photo's were being taken.
For the Hacker collector this must be the holly grail as there are no others around for restoration or for sale.
