Zenith Trans-Oceanic RD7000Y2 In very fine condition with original Case (SOLD)
A very fine receiver , one owner from new and just 14 years of age and was the final model with the desirable band spread tuning. Also the last model to be hand wired and also seems to be the best audio of the transistorised Trans-Oceanic series.
First produced in 1969 and was updated 3 times with a total 130,000 units produced. The radio offeres a built in BFO for SSB reception, a tone control, two bandwidths, lighted dial and map light and 9 select bands, including VHF weather. Other improvements over the earlier 1000 and 3000 series included a stronger handle independant of the large whip telescopic aerial. Also the Chrome plating was improved to eliminate the pitting issues with earlier models. There was 3 versions of this model, they were identical apart from the weather band and the map compartment cover was changed from silver to black and the front cover was re-designed in the final version.
As can be seen in the pictures the overall condition is very good with little markings of age.
The main tuning dial lamps work , though Im trying to locate a new bulb for the map reader.
You need to fit one 1.5 volt battery for these lamps, even if used only on the mains.
Comes complete with original mains lead and 6 months gurantee
