I'd intended to use the word "later" when describing the 7000 but I see now
that I left it out. Sometimes I type faster than I think.... The 3000 and 1009
are both included in Sams TSM 74.'

Although the Admiral Y1009 model is a little off target for this post I thought I would attach a picture of the original packaging the radio came in.....enjoy!

I had a friend that just snagged one of these beauties on eBay last night.
He had been looking for one forever.
Looks like it was never used, and even the plastic cover was still clear, which is rare, as they usually "yellowed".

If it is the one I recall seeing, it sold for a record $538.00. It was a nice looking radio and, as you said, had the vinyl cover which is difficult to find. It also had the separate users manual which is nice. I was very suprised that the bidding was that strong. Glad your friend finally scored!

I enjoyed seeing the ads posted for the Admiral radios. Here is my example of the Clipper. Obviously a competitor of the Zenith Navigator radios. The styling reminds me of the Hallicrafters S-38 communication receivers. Unfortunately the case on mine is trashed. The radio however plays well and is very sensitive and selective. I've been toying with the idea of building a new case for it. I'm showing it now as it sort of fits with this thread and is a fairly rare radio. At least I've never seen another one.

Maybe finding a radio with a better case could be an option.........there is a radio on E-Bay right now for a Buy-It-Now of $36. I have seen quite a few over time so upgrading might not be to difficult.......good luck!

I just got an Admiral Y1009B which works but needs re-capping.

I would like a service manual or link to one.
