Very nice collection my friend. I think most of us old timers started out on a crystal scanners. I actually still have one working crystal scanner left (a Regency ACT-10) and honestly love it.

I'm sure you are gonna find a lot of us have a few of them left in various working conditions.

(By the way that Bearcat 8 Track is VERY cool ) :)

My wifes grandma has one up in Alpena,MI at her cabin Can't quite remember what it is though.. Next I go up there I'll look.. When I was up there a few years ago. You could listen to the radio or the pd on it. Not sure if you still can. But it still functions today as far as I know. I'll have to get a pic of it and post it.

Very nice collection you have there for sure I like the old Cuna 4000.

I'm not a collector but I do have a couple of oldies here,I've got a Realistic Pro-52 8 channel crystal scanner and a Weatheralert Forcaster made by Electrolert.inc 3 channels.

Thanks for sharing.

Crystal controlled car radio/scanner

Today I have a new scanner for my collection.
The problem is:there is no information on the scanner exept the serial number.
Is there someone who knows more about this car radio/scanner?

Post the serial number, maybe a back shot...
Very cool scanner, I've never seen one like that.

The serial number is 2100546
But I think it's not gonna help.
I think you're right :wink:
Did you buy it across the pond...

Like I said I've never seen one like that, Regency made a table top model that had two crystals and a tuning low, later high band radio. I wonder if it's something they could have done... But if it's European... who knows.

Neat picture, I would have liked to have one back in the day.

Wonderful scanner collection, well-displayed, and nicely designed web page. Brings back a lot of memories to see the various scanners that were owned by my family or myself over the years, such as the Craig 4350A.

Thank you for sharing with us.
