I have three of these receivers available for sale.
There are 2 DX150A models, ONE DX150B (with mechanical 
Some have one or two knobs that are different. A couple of these
have the AF gain pot removed. All of the receivers are being sold 
They are complete unless otherwise noted.
Each of these needs an AC line cord. The antenna connections 
have been
changed to BNC receptacles but that is no big deal and it's very 
easy to change one
of these to an SO-239 if desired. Some of these may have an extra 
sticker or two.

Most of these sets look a little used, and show some wear, but they 
be great for a restoration project or to use as is if you are not 
looking for a
collector's model, beauty queen receiver.

I do not know if they work. I have not tested them. 
They will need an AC cord and some need a volume pot.

DX-150B manufactured 1972 - 1974 - has Five FETs AND 
mechanical filter.

I will supply a copy of the operators manual AND the service 
manual with each
of these radios. The manuals include the schematic diagrams etc.

Two radios (DX150A) are available for $39.00 each plus shipping
