This Nova-Tech was on our local auction web page with a starting bid of NZ$48 say US$40 with a few lurkers watching but when it came to the crunch I was the only bidder so it's mine. The photos made it look good and I wanted a LF band radio for beacon hunting. It arrived this morning and I was amazed - it's immaculate! Not only does it look like it's never been used but it came in it's original box with all the accessories still in their polythene bags and a very smart leather case AND the instruction booklet AND the guarantee card showing it was bought in Lautoka, Fiji in on 18th March 1972. The only problem so far is the foam pad that holds the battery pack in place has just disintegrated into powder and spread itself all over the dial scale transparency. I'll give it a try out this evening when it gets dark to see if I can get my favourite test station, PMQ Port McQuarie 395kHz over the other side of the Tasman.
