    This is a 1950's Collins 51J-2 receiver. It needs cleaning up, and reconditioned. It appears to have all it's tubes, though I can't say if they all are still working. I did plug this unit up and the lights work. It needs a new chassis mount 239 attached for antenna. All the knobs are present, one knob needs a new set screw. The Collins winged logo was apparently removed and replaced with a brass plate with a name of Ralph E. Whitaker, only information I could find on that name was a fella that moved to Tupelo, MS from Alabama many years ago, but I was not able to connect him directly to this piece, as his name isn't in FCC ULS, maybe he was a SWL. I would love to recondition this unit and get the 4 digit price tag for it, but I have more modern upgrades planned to other equipment, and never reconditioned a item before.

    I don't plan to ship, could discuss meeting reasonably, but I do plan to bring it to the Huntsville Hamfest.

    Comment here or send me a email to if you would like to discuss this item. Thanks for looking.
