1959 Grundig Majestic Stereo Ad
« on: June 11, 2021, 1650 UTC »

I was thumbing through a box of free National Geographics for some reading material at my Bay area AirBnB aand noticed the attached ad.  I thought if someone owned said receiver, they might enjoy a copy of the magazine advertisement, from April 1959.  Enjoy.

Tecsun H501x (primary receiver), Zenith T/O G500, Zenith T/O Royal 7000, Emerson AR-176, Zenith 8S154, T/O 7G605 (Bomber), Tecsun PL-600, Tecsun PL-880, Zenith 5S320, Realistic DX 160 using 40 feet of copper wire.  With apologies to Senator Gramm for his thoughts on firearms, "I have more radios than I need but not as many as I want."
QTH:  Durham, Connecticut (rural setting, 15 miles north of Long Island Sound)

That's quite expensive adjusted for inflation,  mid 50s -60s in today's money = approximately $3500 to $4000.
 For rich people!
