Early 1950's (1951-1953) Zenith Trans-Oceanic Wave Magnet Shortwave Radio. This is the H-500 model. The 500 series models used five tubes: a 3V4, 1U5, 1U4, and 1L6. Cosmetically it is in very good condition. The outer case appears free of tears, front and back doors open smoothly, the bakelite handle is free of cracks. The antenna is straight. It powers on and has a nice warm tube sound. We picked up Radio Havana HMO1 nice and clear inside a brick building, and several local florida channels. However, of course your mileage may vary.
