I've had this radio for quite some time and I've always wondered what the 2 notches on the rear door are for.

Does anyone know what their purpose is or was?

To allow entry for a longwire and/or ground on the left rear or the lead-in for the optional WaveMagnet antenna on the right.

What? No pic of the front? The rear view looks super-clean. :)

That is radio porn if I ever saw it.

Bet it sounds as good as it looks.

It looked pretty much the same when I bought it from a neighbor nearly 20 years ago. A light cleanup with some mild detergent and a microfiber cloth was all that it needed.
