If you collect or restore old radios, crystal sets, early scientific apparatus, vintage test equipment, military surplus, or other unique old technical items, keep me on your watch list. I am constantly digging around at estate sales, attics, sales, flea markets, and swap meets. I list items for sale on several times a week. So stay tuned. Another item you can’t do without is coming soon.

Very Hard To Find These Days

Here is a mid 1950’s Heathkit Model CR-1 Crystal Radio Set. The CR-1 is arguably the best performing commercially sold Crystal Radio sets of all time. The key to its performance is its dual tuning and the ferrite core coupling between the antenna tuner and the detector tuner. Modern day copycats have tried to match its performance by X-Raying the tuning coil to determine the size and placement of the ferrite slug inside the coil. The modern Crystal Radios built by competitive DX gurus use the same dual tuning technique. Examples are the Tuggle and the Lionodyne circuits.

Size is approx 6” x 3” x 3” including Knobs

There are no cracks chips, or scratches in the gloss Bakelite case. The panel has a couple minor scratches, seen clearly in the photos. This set is as clean inside as it is outside. When connected to a suitable antenna, ground and phones, this set pulls in distant stations, especially in the evening. The dual tuning provides excellent sensitivity while maintaining the ability to separate stronger local stations.

This sought after model CR-1 is becoming increasingly harder to find because they are all in the hands of collectors. I wouldn’t be selling this set if I didn’t already have one in my collection. Don’t miss your chance to own this legendary set.
