AIWA Stereo 250 (CS-250U) 4 Band Stereo Cassette Recorder with DSL Dynamic Super Loudness system!!!

When the DSL (dynamic super loudness system) button is activated, the stereo does get louder and the bass improves!!!

READER'S DIGEST RD-30!!!! FM / AM / SW cassette recorder?!!! That is right! Who would have guessed that there was a Reader's Digest line of portable stereos? Of course, this little machine has only one speaker so it isn't really a "stereo" but who cares!!!!! Reader's Digest Mofo!!!!!! The sound out of this solid little machine is decent and the radio tuner has an awesome scrolling system controlled by the large chrome knob on the side!!

Realistic TRC-101B Portable 23 Channel CB Transceiver!!!!
Now you can talk to truckers with this fine portable transceiver from Realistic!!! The art on the box is great!! Judging from the paper work on the inside of the box I would guess invaluable product was made in 1976!!!!! The TRC-101B has a range of 3-15 miles when its giant antenna is fully extended (about 5' long)!!!! The TRC-101B came with a leather carrying case like the construction worker on the front of the box has!! Unfortunately Uncle Jack didn't find these rare gem with its case, it did come with the instruction book, some ancient batteries, a book on radio broadcast law, papers for getting a use permit, and the electrical schematics page!!!!! Get one of these and go pester some truckers, or just have it to look really cool!!!!!!

Silvertone 132.20750000 Transistor AM Radio and Alarm Clock!!!!
Why yes, Uncle Jack is dumb enough to decide to start collecting old alarm clocks!!! This baby was produced by Silvertone for Sears Roebuck and Company and it stills works wonderfully after all these years!! No fancy features just a nice metal grill over the speaker that looks like the covering for an old, electric razor!!!! Props!

General Electric C 4506 G!!!! AM/FM Radio Alarm Clock!!!
Yes, the reason Uncle Jack purchased this radio alarm clock is because it is ugly!!!!! All alarm clocks should look this good!!!!!!

Sanyo M 2402-3 AM/FM 2 Band Radio Cassette Recorder!!!!!
This attractive little darling doesn't have much going for it other than the cool tuner which spins like a wheel!!! The sound quality of the little speaker isn't very good!!!!! The switch for AM or FM is a tiny little thing on the back of the machine?! Kind of weird!!!! Made in Singapore!!!!
Headphone Output!
Microphone Input!!
Built in Microphone!!!
AC or DC Power!
Built in storage for the AC cord which is hardwired to the machine!!!!

Panasonic RX-C45 FM-AM-FM Stereo Cassette Deck Tuner Amplifier!!!
This chrome mother is not that large- 21" x 7" x 6.75", but it has weight at 11.3 lbs without batteries, probably due to the built in amp?!! The sound quality of the stock speakers which detach is OK! The detachable speakers are interesting because they have a little, pop-out switch on the attaching side which pops into the main unit allowing them to be powered that way while attached, if using them detached, speaker wire is required!!!! The batteries go in the top of the machine on the back?! That is a little strange!!! With the built in amp and all the inputs and outputs, this boom box is clearly designed for use with other stereo equipment!!!! Made in Japan!!

Mono/ stereo button!!!

General Electric M-8010 Reel to Reel Recorder!!!
This is Uncle Jack's first portable reel to reel recorder, it is in almost working order!!!! Since the machine is not working quite yet its quality is unknown!!! It comes with a cool looking stereo microphone which has a small stand attached to the back so it can stand up on a desk!!!!!! It is cool that there is no fast forward, who needs that any ways??!!!! There is an input for a remote and an output for an "ear phone"!!!!! There is a little recording level meter in the bottom left corner!!!! The machine runs off of 4 D size batteries or a 6 volt DC input!!!!! The machine comes in an ugly leather carrying case so it can be taken into "the field"!!!!! There is also a clear plastic cover for the tape and microphone compartments!!!!! Yeah, old stuff!!!!!!!!!!!! Made in Utica, New York!!!
