Sony Earth-Orbiter Model CRF-5100


Out of stock


Offered here is the Sony Model CRF-5100 10 band Earth-Orbiter portable radio from the mid 70’s.  The bands are AM/FM/Public Service, and 7 SW bands.  What a pleasure it is to operate this high-tech piece of audio equipment.  I have received stations on all of the bands including SW and the sound is impressive.  The sensitivity is one of the things these Earth-Orbiters are famous for, and I like the lighted tuning which shows the strength of the stations as you fine-tune them in.  The strong carrying handle make it easy to take this with you when you equip it with the 8 D batteries.  This one also has the unique power cord which is required to operate this on AC current.

This particular example has been lightly used and is in excellent cosmetic and operating condition.  The only detractor I can find is the model information strip is missing from the back.  I have fully tested it to assure it will perform as advertised on batteries or the AC power cord (included).  Measures 12″ wide.
