Raytheon AM-100 Vintage Transistor Radio /Walkie Talkie

Up for auction is a vintage Raytheon AM-100 dual band AM transistor radio-walkie talkie with original leather carry case and strap.. This odd little transceiver employs a single crystal to transmit and receive on CB channel 11 (27.085 Mhz), and also doubles as an AM radio receiver! Manufactured around 1966, this unit has been tested and everything is working; the AM radio sounds great, and the transceiver transmits and receives on CB channel 11. It's in good cosmetic condition; t is one small crack in the back of the case (see supersized photos), but otherwise nice. The case is a little worn, but overall is pretty nice. Measures 6" x 2 3/8" x 1 3/8" deep, has a 29" telescoping antenna, and a working battery condition meter. Requires one 9V battery, not included.
