National / Panasonic RF-1150, Handheld HF/VHF Receiver

New Panasonic I Paid $110 USD in 1975, Used it most everyday in H.S., at beaches, gatherings, worked wonderful in the car Also you can plug in your electric guitar. FYI My radio is used 8hr-5/days a week for the past 31 years to date at my job, yes there is a few minor issued but still preforms very well-It helps that I have a single 1965 EV external speaker connected (10" w/Klipsch Horn)- and it will fill the room.. The RF-1150 has Great Sound, lots of volume/power, Has a exceptional Turner w/A+ reception on All bands AM/FM SW MB CB also has a Ext.Antenna connection, Line I/O, Spk. out...
Today Jan.'17 you could pay up to $180. for one that's Mint condition. I own 3 in all(1 for parts) It Gets My Vote and will still outlast Most anything that's made today.
