I had one of these in the mid-1970s. It was available as a mail-order kit around 1976/7. It ran on batteries also, and was a decent (crystal controlled) radio.
Estimating the value of a rig can be challenging. We collect prices paid by real hams over the years to help you estimate the current value of the Lowe ASV-1515. Just bought or sold this model? Let us know what you traded it for and help other ham operators!
