Return to The Portable Collection

This is the second in the EK Cole 'Stroller' series of portables and, by now, the shortwave has been dropped - presumably to hold down the final price. It must have been shown that cunsumers were not particularly bothered by the lack of SW bands on their sets too.

The Stroller II has been standardised in terms of its IF operation (no geographically separate versions) and now has a natty (if rather flimsy) lid to protect the dial.
