True to its description it did actually function, the stereo lamp wasn't working and the tuning meter, or as much as was visible, was also skipping around. Connected a decent antenna to it and adjusted the stereo and muting settings and away it went.

Dirty and dusty in there as one would expect......but actually functions pretty well, will need the usual components replacing. More of a concern is the tuning meter front lens.

This has been subject to a bit of UV damage I think....it's cloudy as opposed to marked, bit like the sliders on the Beomaster amps...

I'm hoping someone out there will have a meter that's damaged/broken but with a clear lens I can purchase? I will drop Frede a line.....maybe he has one squirrelled away someplace.....
