Want a radio that nobody else has? This is a RETS radio - RETS Electronic Schools, which were established in Detroit in 1935. The radio was likely a teaching model or perhaps made by students. I think the case is a Wards Airline case. The School is still around, but is now the Everest Institute as of 2006.This small 5 tube radio is in very good condition and was made in the late 1940s. The chocolate brown case is spotless showing little wear at all. This radio has been well cared for.
The wiring is well done and in good condition. This is a working radio ready to play, display and enjoy the sound is with clear and crisp with hum.
It is playing as I write this. As with all my radios it is electrically sound - the tubes are strong and all of the capacitors have been replaced. The cord has been replaced using a polarized plug.
It has a nicely styled gold dial with logo; on/off/volume and tuning knobs and a nicely styled three grill louvers over the speaker. The loop antenna is present on the reproduced back.
The measurements are: 9 across, 5 wide and 6 high. Given its age and condition, this radio will give years of good service. Every radio I sell has been thoroughly serviced - tubes tested, components checked and then the unit is lubricated and cleaned inside and out.
The work performed can be seen in the pictures of the chassis and/or found in the radio description. Restored one of a kind RETS tube radio & 6 month guarantee.
