I enjoy collecting old radios of any kind.  I came across this little gem today at a garage sale for only fifty cents.  It is a simple transistorized AM radio with a leatherette case that snaps closed on the back.  It runs on 110 Volts or with batteries.  The only marking on it is “Passport”; and I can find no model number or brand and internet searches come up with nothing.  It is a cute little radio that includes 6 transistors and 2 diodes.  I thought it was clever that they even listed the two diodes in their count of solid state devices. 🙂  Click the picture to see more pictures of the radio.

See http://www.transistor.org/ for a real nice collection of transistor radios.
