For Sale: set of Navy RBB and RBC receivers with matching serial numbers, includes:

RBB-1 CRV46147, serial 332, 0.5-4.0Mc

RBC-1 CRV46148, serial 332, 4.0-27Mc

COQ 20130-C power supply, serial 24,

two armored power cables

two original antenna connection cables

one power cord

there is plenty of info on the net about these receivers. they were designed for the Navy to withstand life aboard battleships. each receiver weighs 80 lbs, the power supply an additional 52 lbs and the power cables about 15lbs so shipping is not going to happen.

Pick Up Only in Virginia Beach!

this is a matching serial number set which is quite rare as these receivers were generally overhauled and put back into service and generally would up in different places than they started.

the power supply is for one receiver but is designed to power both if need be.

Condition: as found. there was enough dust on them when I found them to make me believe they were untouched for at least the past 30 years. the only thing I have done is open the power supply for a visual condition check and it is very clean.

They are untested. I am selling to clear room for other projects but I have been getting the itch to try them out. If I try them out one of two things will likely happen, they work (price goes up), I blow something up (price may go down). so if you are interested, do not wait for the price to go down.

$580 for the set.

OK, I've agonized over these long enough...

If they are complete and unmolested inside, I'll take them. :D
