Heathkit GR-21 FM Table Radio
GRA-21-1 "FM Stereo Converter Unit"

This is a listing for the Heathkit GR-21 FM Table Radio and the matching multiplex unit, which they call the "FM Stereo Converter Unit".

The cases are very solid wood with a substantial walnut veneer. Each piece is about 15 1/4 wide, 8 1/2 tall and 6 deep. Cosmetics on both cases are fairly good, some damage seen to the wood in places. Grilles in good shape. All knobs original, and mechanically functioning.

The radio works well, no grounding hum heard, tunes easily. I've done an a 3Mb AVI video of me tuning stations with only the internal antenna, it's if you want to see it.

Note: The "magic eye" tuning indicator does not work, no idea if it's the tube or the circuit. And, when connected, the "FM Stereo Converter Unit" does play, volume and tone work, but it does not sound stereo to me, so I suspect it needs repair or tube replacement.

These are heavy units! The raw (unboxed) weight for both is about 26.4 pounds.

Total weight, boxed for shipping rounds up to 30 pounds. Any items that I sell which may be considered fragile will be packed appropriately. Domestic (US) shipments: I will add $2.00 handling fee to help pay for boxes, tape, packaging, cushioning if required and delivery confirmation fees. International
