Default Marconi NS702 / 2207E, SN 623 (Atalanta type) receiver

My radio club is disposing of this receiver. It is strictly for collection only, from Bletchley (Milton Keynes), and it weighs about 80lbs. It includes the standard AC mains power supply built into the rear of the cabinet.

This one has a blank bandspread scale and no "Atalanta" badge, so presumably was not installed on a ship although the name plate states "General Purpose Marine Receiver NS. 702."

Assume full restoration will be required - starting with replacing the capacitors in the mains filter with modern Y types before any attempt is made to power it up.

Generally clean inside, but you'll need to remove an old spider's nest from the tuning scale...

Can be collected from the MK radio rally (Sunday 25th) - if there are no takers by late Saturday it will be on sale on the club stall.

Asking price 75. PM if interested.

(and just out of interest, can any ex-R/O or Marconi members tell me what the "E" means in the type number?)

This has been provisionally sold to "deliverance".
