Eagle Transistor table radio
« on: February 22, 2021, 07:47:40 PM »
Good day guys

I need some help here. I met a lady tonight that is selling her dad's old stuff. One of the items I saw was an old Eagle Transistor table radio. I want to know from the experts on the forum if this old radio is worth anything, and if so, how much. I am still struggling to upload a pic to a hosting site, but as soon as I can I will add a pic to this post.

Thanks,
Deon

Also have never come across this make. If it was not stated on the dial, as being transistor, I would have taken it as being a 1950- ish valve table top radio. If it is still in working order, it may be of interest, as it covers the normal FM band and could be a daily user in kitchen, bedroom, lounge, etc.

I expect that it would have used germanium transistors, which by now, may well be leaky and  kaput.
I saw Sputnik, well... actually the booster rocket that went into orbit with it!!

I think I'll probably end up buying this old beauty myself, just for the looks of it. ;D

The "Eagle" LT44 and LT700 transformers were staples of many DIY medium wave transistor radios of the 1970s (maybe 60s).
I wonder if it's the same company.

Not familiar with that brand either but, it appears to be in very good condition and will be a nice acquisition if you enjoy vintage gear. I have got a 1950s RCA valve-based table radio in very good condition and working order. I love the vintage look. Photo of my one herewith.
