|Codar CR70A Mk.2 - General
This was probably, in the 1960's, a very good introductory set to the world of short wave and although it is quite sensitive on the lower ranges it has a rather coarse tuning adjustment.
Nevertheless, the build quality is good and the set gives good duty as a shop radio for listening to the VOA. It features an S-meter as well as an antenna trim control, IF gain, switchable BFO and a (supposedly) 2 stage bandscale drive.
