Working BCR 101

Lafayette BCR-101, Desktop Shortwave receiver

I have had a working BCR 101 for several years.I use it for general SWL'ing and WWV.
It works fine on ALL bands. I have had no trouble with it so far. No, I have no books on it! It's nowhere near anything available today but it works and being older technolgy, it can be reapired locally.
