One thing I do like about these RCA portables is
that they are stylish - even if they have easily broken plastic cases.
This is a fairly typical mains/battery portable set from RCA's lineup
of the time and, electronically, is nothing special. It features the 'Golden Throat'
sound - which is surprising from a plastic case!
