This radio works beautifully with reception of FM stations coming in loud and clear across the band. I don't know why. I set the clock, let it run for a week, and can report complete accuracy with no noise.
The additional clock functions of wake-up with radio, sleep control for up to 60 minutes of radio followed by radio turn off, and the powered socket at the back for powering up some morning appliance with wake-up (coffee perhaps) all work. The wake-up with buzzer has no buzzer - the radio comes on as it does with wake-up with radio.The heavy maroon plastic cabinet has no cracks, chips, or noteworthy scratches. The two clock knobs are identical to the original controls but in white. As these match the color of the'Saturn' tuning dial, I think it works beautifully. Note the Civil Defense CD markings on the dial.
The Zenith brass badge has been polished to bring back the shine and then protected with clear lacquer to preserve the glow. And the small red jewel above the radio dial face glows nicely in the dark when the radio is playing. The power cord and plug are original and in great shape. The back panel is complete and in place and the original label is on the bottom.The electronics are all original parts. Given the remarkable performance of the radio, I couldn't see messing with the circuitry. I did pull and clean the seven tubes and check them on my Hickok tube tester to confirm that they all met or exceeded the specifications. The speaker is in excellent condition, delivering sweet sound with superb volume and tone. Don't let this beauty slip away to that other guy.. I think that this clock radio is such a charmer that I did a short YouTube video to show it performing. I do say the buzzer works. I'm wrong - it does not.
The radio measures about 15" W x 7" H x 8 D and weighs about 8 lbs.
