General Electric HJ-514 (1939)


General Electric HJ-514 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here's a little cutie from the 1939 GE lineup that won't take up much space on your counter. Internal antennas were hot stuff in the late 30s and it's fun to read the names the companies gave them. I just listed a FADA with a "Fa-Da-Scope" antenna. GE called this one "Beam-A-Scope." Whatever it is, it receives better than a lot of more expensive radios. It had the good fortune of being on the finishing bench the same day as a higher end radio, so got the same high end finish, with twelve coats of lacquer! It is a very good looking little set. All new caps, resistors as necessary, a full set of high testing tubes, and a full alignment produced a really good performing chassis. There are a few small water stains in the veneer, a very small (1/2") repair in the 4-inch speaker, and I had to piece in a broken corner in the back cover. Still, all in all, it is a darling little radio that just makes you want to love it (I hope!). 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D.
