The Hitachi WH-667 "Judy" was an early AM/SW radio and used only 6 transistors, but had a tone control feature. The Hitachi WH-667 is powered by 4 C-cells and still works well with its original components. Besides having 2 earphone jacks, the WH-667 also had a plug for an AC adapter, which unfortunately I don't have. Although the Hitachi WH-667 is a well-built transistor radio, it is a rather large radio and was probably not too popular with consumers.

Very nice. I like the side by side dial indicators.

The Hitachi WH-667 looked like it had been sitting in a garage for years and it took awhile to clean all the grime off the case. Fortunately, the radio had been stored without the batteries and the interior of the radio was really clean. I used the WH-667 for a couple months as it receives AM station 1260 KSUR quite well, but decided to use another radio as I thought that using a transistor radio manufactured in 1958 daily was asking a little too much! - Mark

Why would you think that? I have NP using my '30's-'40's consoles whenever, along with my '50's-'60's Transistor sets as well.
