1962 Eddystone S940 Communications receiver   (valve) New
Fully overhauled and ready to tune into the world once again.   

Here we have one of the classic Eddystone receivers,  it has just been fettled in our workshop and is now in great working order.   The 930 was aimed at the more discerning amateur listener or commercial user.  It is a proper HF communications receiver with decent filtering,  a product detector for SSB listening,  AGC,  S meter and several stages of IF amplifier.    This one cosmetically is excellent,  and hardly has any marks on it at all.   Comes complete with the Eddystone mains lead (with proper plug) and some original paperwork / manuals.    They are easy to drive and the silky smooth tuning makes whizzing up and down the SW bands a pleasure.   Tunes from MW through to 30 MHz.   Have a look at the pictures and see the Eddystone user group website for more information about this set.     


Frequency Coverage :- HF communications receiver to 30 MHz.

Price £300
UK Delivery £25     It is a heavy beast of a receiver built in a steel cabinet!

A little bit of BBC monitoring back in the 1960's     Those were the days.   No heating required.
