Minerva W-117 "Tropic Master" (1945)

Minerva W-117 "Tropic Master" (1945)

An original radio made exclusively for U.S. military personnel in the Pacific theater as a "morale booster." It has a rugged, steel case. The dial is lighted. Excellent reception on both bands. It has a tone control and I've added a wire for an antenna. Just put behind your furniture. Heavy at 18 pounds. This radio was manufactured by Minerva Radio Corporation of America. This set, went into production late in the war, during the mid-summer of 1945. At that time, many anticipated at least another year or more of long and bloody battle during the invasion of the Japanese mainland. Perhaps the best thing about the Tropic Master radio is the audio quality. A large 6-inch speaker, combined with the overbuilt push-pull audio circuit featuring two 25L6 vacuum tubes, provides a rich, full sound. This is the type of radio that makes AM radio sound good, not just for the usual news and sports broadcasts, but also for music. One can imagine a group of men and ladies listening to Glenn Miller or Harry James on this unit. Visitors who hear the radio instantly comment, "Wow, that radio sounds great." This is a rare radio, especially in this superb condition. 15"W x 9"H x 9"D. $599.00. (1090731)

Guarantee & Terms of Sale

All radios are guaranteed for 30 days. If a radio fails within that time, we will work together to make a fix. A buyer SHALL NOT attempt to make any repairs to the radio without my approval.

My Restoration Philosophy

Vacuum tubes are tested and any weak/defective tubes are replaced.  Electrolytic and wax capacitors are replaced.  NO exceptions!!  I consider this to be mandatory.  Resistors are tested and replaced if needed.  If the speaker cone is torn and cannot be repaired with a simple fix, it is replaced.  The tuning capacitor is cleaned and lubricated.  All controls/switches are cleaned with DETOXIT D5 electronic cleaner.  The radio is aligned to play at peak performance using a signal generator.  The cases/knobs are hand polished to a bright shine.  Cracked/worn/frayed wires are replaced.  The power cord is replaced.  My goal is to provide you with a radio that is safe to use on a daily basis.  I DO NOT take any shortcuts.  I take personal pride in my workmanship!  All radios that I sell will be restored as per my restoration philosophy.

About me...

I began repairing radios in 1958.  I was an Aviation Electronics Technician (Nuclear Weapons) in the U.S. Navy and a Senior Electronic Technician for the Bendix Aviation Company repairing/calibrating electronic equipment used by NASA/Space Program.  After retirement, I began restoring vintage radios as a hobby and have sold many to local antique shops and to friends.
