Roberts Radios have a justly deserved reputation as being the 'Rolls-Royce' of portables. They were more expensive than average but this was reflected by high-quality design, components and construction.

This entry-level set is a superbly compact example of their crafstmanship, and was originally sold with a beautiful canvas and leather carrying bag (good examples of which now command very high prices!).
