This is an 11m tube Citizens Band radio. Once repaired this ugly duckling performed well and in spec. The crystals had to be put back to original. And all exploded capacitors and other paper capacitors replaced. A few resistors were out of tolerance. Sorry I do not have any more pictures.
Before you get upset and return your ham license keep in mind; If there is an emergency your trusty ARES/RACES ham operator should be prepared with an operational CB on hand. Many potential volunteers have CB radios. Having one can only enhance your EmCom flexibility. There are better selections for a rig other than tube type.
This radio was a pleasurable experience. I recommend using a well documented CB to acquire some experience or hone your restoration, repair and alignment skills before taking on that Drake TR-4.
