Default Ekco U49 (AC/DC version of A23)

For sale, 25 - Working Ekco U49 AC/DC press-button LW/MW/SW

Case and dial markings in very good condition (Some scratches top right - see photo.) Some years ago I replaced all the usual capacitors, checked voltages and realigned using a wobbulator and a calibrated signal generator.

The set has been stored for about seven years and still sounds lively. Minor problem is that the dial pointer gets stuck. Presumably caused by hardened grease as nothing seems to have broken.

The original station labels for the presets have long gone, but the original cross-head screws used to secure the preset escutcheon are both there.

Included is Ekco U49 Trader Sheet 827.

This set looks identical to the Ekco A23 AC-mains version.

Collection by arrangement from Reading, Berkshire or Fakenham, Norfolk.

Thanks.

Ian

Hello Ian,

Is it possible to collect tomorrow from Fakenham ? Or is that too soon ?

I'm in Norwich tomorrow afternoon.

Regards,

Han.
