||Jim- It arrived 3 days ago & sounds great!! Thank
you! The 3rd "plaid' w/ recharger & case is on it's way to me now.
I forgot if it needs a tune-up or not. If it does---- would you
fix it & I'll do Paypal again???? Thank you-Jimbo
|The radio is in fine shape and sounds very good. Its
way too wide to be a DXer but it sure sounds sweet. I can certainly
recommend Jim Barnard for any transistor radio repairs you have.
The price is decent and the work is quality. You canít ask for more
than that. If you have an old Zenith kicking about that needs repairs,
you now have a place to go. Check out his website. Kevin
||Jim, The Royal 790 arived today in excellent condition!
Thanks for the extra care in packing it for shipping! I've been
looking for one of these ever since I saw one at my Dad's office
when I was a child. He was the Warranty Service Manager for a Zenith
Radio & TV Distributor in north Louisiana. He let me listen to it
after he had finished repairing the "bad job" one of his service
techs had done to it. I was hooked! Now, I have one of my very own!
Again, thanks! Steve
|JIM, I RECEIVED THE RADIO TODAY. IT WORKS GREAT. THANKS
FOR THE QUICK TURN AROUND. I WILL DEFINITELY USE YOUR SERVICES AGAIN.
HAVE A GREAT DAY. RICH

|Jim, Good news! I do have the presentaion case, carry

||I'm a former Zenith employee who worked
in the color television group from 1975-1983. Today, I collect Zenith
radios including transistor radios, TOs, consoles, and wooden and
plastic table radios. Although I don't live in Oklahoma anymore,
I was also one of the founders of the Tulsa antique radio club www.hlara.org
and built their website. Your site is wonderful, and I really enjoyed
seeing your collection of Zenith transistor radios, which overlaps
my collection in many areas. However, you radios look much better
than mine - probably due to your skills in repairing and restoring
the cabinets. Just wanted to let you know that it's a wonderful
