The Heath AR-3 was introduced in 1957.

Covers 550Kc. to 30 MHz. in four bands.

As you see, this receiver is in pretty nice physical shape:

Needs two pilot lamps.

It powers up and receives local broadcast stations with distorted audio.

There is large HUM on all bands which means that the two power supply

filter caps need replacement.

Can not hear SW band signals with hum and my old notes show that

the 12BE6 oscillator tube tested weak...which will cause weak signal pickup.

The chassis shows spotting which should be removed with Naval jelly
( if you never heard of Naval jelly…check it out…it does “magic” on restoring

oxidized metal parts and other metal surfaces...and available at auto parts stores. )

You can see how surprising good an AR-3 works on Youtube:

Noirfilmradio - - where the radio even hears SSB darn well in “CW” mode.

Schematic is included.

Being sold “AS – IS.”

No returns.

Will be very well packaged...as ALL my packages are!

Shipping to any 48 US state is $8.00
