|Ever Ready Sky Baronet
The BEREC version of this set was usually finished in a maroon colour and badged as the BEREC 'Matador'.
Return to The Portable Collection
|This was close to the end for the
Ever Ready 'Sky' series of battery portables (there would
be only two others, the Countess and the Captain) and
featured a ferrite rod aerial with printed circuit board.
Sadly, these were the only 'innovations' for the Sky
Baronet still has the same conventional design and
circuitry common to the other 'Sky' series sets.
Although the components have been craftily made to fit a comparatively small PCB and control panel (not seen since the 'Sky Casket'), I do not understand why the case is so large and bulky. True, the 5" speaker gives good sound and, perhaps (give the car aerial input socket), it was thought that for use 'on the move' the size was irrelevant.
