Default Talk About Vintage

I just received my vintage Realistic Pro-1 today from Ebay. Didn't even have to bid. Buy It Now Option for 8 bucks last week. Just like it looks in the photo, dusty but it works. Had one in the 60's when LIN Communications Paging Division in NYC was on 35.22 MHz (Pageboy) and 43.58 MHz (Aircall).

I still have my patrolman Pro 1 slide rule dial VHF High radio. It also has two Crystal controled channels and the crystals are huge. I got that in the late 60s. I even had it in my car for a while in the 70s. It was cool having that 15 inch quarter wave antenna. By the way that radio was made for Radio Shack by a company called... GRE, of course it had to be out of Japan as Nixon was just starting trade with China. It was a great radio.

Well it appears that mine just looks nice, lights up but that's all. I opened it up and it looks pretty decent for the years it's been around. I tried every scanner, monitor and tuner repair shop on the internet and no dice. Can't blame the seller as he has a 100% satisfaction rating and it was listed as untested so that's on me. I'll clean it up and it'l just be a nice museum piece. Take care.
