DK’s Barn Find: A GE Super Radio II

My good friend, David Korchin (K2WNW), has a knack for finding diamonds in the rough.

He’s been known to find a radio that needs TLC, take it home and restore a bit of its former glory. He’s had some amazing luck in the past.

Recently, DK sent a video of of his recent acquisition: a beat-up GE Super Radio II he purchased for two dollars. This radio will win no beauty contests, but it still plays well.

Many thanks, DK, for allowing me to post this video. It goes to show you that you should never pass up an opportunity to adopt a Super Radio. Even if the telescopic antenna is all but missing, the internal ferrite bar is where the money is!

Play on!

    I just got one of these at a yard sale for .75 cents. There is no way I would pay eBay prices for one of these. Yes, it’s a great AM performer, and I think the FM performance is underrated. But, the build quality is that typical cheap feeling GE plastic, and the styling really is a throwback to a classic Radio Shack look. The antenna and AC cord are in tact, the battery door is missing (I’d love to find a replacement). But my 1st night of AM DX’ing yielded some great results, tuning in stations in Ohio that sounded like they were next door. Don’t expect to have precise dial accuracy, it’s just a ballpark. But if you like that “spin the wheel”, let’s see what we can find approach, you’ll have a blast with one of these. Just don’t pay too much for one.
