Hacker RP75 (super Sovereign) 1973 SOLD
The RP75 , Super Sovereign first introduced in 1973 and just one year later the MB version was introduced offering a inbuilt power supply. In effect its a larger and enhanced version of the RP72 (1973) with tuning/battery strenght meter and seperate AM and FM tuning drives. Bandspread control was also fitted for easier use on the two short wave bands provided.
SW1 9.1-27.5 Mhz
SW2 3.37-10.9 Mhz
VHF 88.0-101 Mhz, though will tune to 102.5 Mhz
The quality on VHF is outstanding helped by a improved dynamic loudspeaker and the increased cabinet size.
The condition of the radio is very good, with first class top tuning dial plate, these are often worn, the knobs are all good, the aerial is all original, with the knuckle joint. The battery holder is again very fine condition. Only minor issue is the side Teak cap on the right hand side rear has in the past had a couple of minor dents, though not visiable from the front, see photo's and the bonus for the collector the original packaging and Hacker box.
The radio has been fully tested to Hacker specification and is a great performing radio. Comes complete with batteries and 1 years gurantee
