My Dad and I about 1956 when I was 11yo with a Marconi R1475 from Proops in Totty Court Road - I believe it was 10 and delivered to our home out in the middle of Essex in a tea chest. Dad's friend Fred Turner found the Jones plugs to make the lead from the power unit to the radio and it worked really well in the cold war days with all the activity on the 49m band at night!
