    Watkins-Johnson WJ-8618/B Surveillance receiver in great working condition. This version covers from 20 Mhz. to 1.1 Ghz. AM, CW, NBFM and WBFM. These receivers were used by the CIA and other government agencies for monitoring foreign radio traffic and are built to government specs. They are quite heavy as you might expect. Power requirements are 110-120 VAC. It requires an external audio amp since these radios were normally ganged in racks and used in conjunction with a remote IF and audio unit.

    I’m looking for a trade for other suitable radio equipment or sell for $150.00. Due to the weight of this radio I will not be able to ship it so this will have to be a local pick-up.

    Is this receiver sold??

    I see it's an old ad but doesn't hurt to ask.
