1948 Hard-To-Find Early Allied Knight-Kit "Ocean Hopper"
Here's a nice example, ofAllied Radio's first generation Ocean Hopper. This like all Ocean Hoppers is a regenerative radio that usesplug-in coils, and it comes with five coils that work in the short wave, and amateur radiobands. The radio receives some stations during the day, but pulls in more at night. I was also able to copy morse code (CW), better than I expected from this little receiver. Three of the coils are marked with wavelength and frequency range, two are not. It seems to work fairly well, with good volume into my headphones, andwill drive an external speaker , though I didn't try one.I will also include a schematic diagram.
A nice wrinkle finish front panel, with sharp clear lettering
Two good tubes
All controls work and turn smoothly
The top of the chassis has been cleaned, but has a few dark spots
of the knobs are correct, andoriginal
The coils cover: 160, 80, 40, 20, 17, 15 and 10 meter Amateur Radio bands,
as well as short wave stations in between.
Thanks for looking, and I respond to all emails.
