Current Bid: $ 260.00  

As usual I have some nice items up for bid this week, so please check my other auctions after viewing this one. Here up for bid is this very rare WW1 SCR-61 Radio Wavemeter, made in 1918 by National Electronic Supply(NESCO). The wavemeter was used by WW1 troops in trenches and such, to adjust the early radio wireless spark transmitters. The SCR-61 has a early DeForest style crystal detector, and was easily modified so troops could also receive radio spark transmissions to and from the command site. The wood case is solid, and still has the original paint. The top of the case has a few small holes on the right side. The tag on the top is a good photoshop reproduction. All insides are all original, and all three coils are included. The coil plugged into the lid and contacts to the chassis went through the rear hinges. Very heavy duty construction, and similar in design to the BC-14A crystal radio receiver used for artillery spotting, this SCR-61 is very hard to find today. Great for that early wireless or WW1 radio collection. Buyer pays $35 shipping to 48 states. Overseas buyers pay $200 shipping. As always with all my auctions you can bid with confidence. Just look at my 100% feedback and feel safe bidding, and know your item will arrive safely. I have been collecting radios for 37 years and always have something interesting available.
