Picked up this Philips Mercury Transistor/phonograph. Yellowed with nicotine and dirt but cleaned up really nicely. Cleaned the battery terminals and it all fired up and sounds great. Was able to jury rig the turntable with rubber bands since the original belts had deteriorated with age. Can't seem to come up with a model number anywhere onit. Any ideas?
Thanks

The French model is a Medium-Wave and Long-Wave (+/-150 - 400 kHz) receiver.

What does yours receive: Medium Wave (530 - 1600 kHz) only?

Medium range. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the reception and the sound. Pulls in statins most of my other radios can not. Fun little thing - one of those finds piled in with some other audio junk equipment. Covered in dirt, tobacco stain etc.. Listed for sale 'as-is' radio $15. Was thrilled to open it up at home to find out it was a turntable that worked too! Made for a great day. :mrgreen:
