Well, it was fun to look at and admire the perfect black wrinkle finish paint but it is time for this to leave the nest.
I have a new old stock (NOS) BC-442-A antenna relay unit built by the Colonial Radio Corporation. This is in an original - and not very pretty - box with the following stamped on the outside:
SIGNAL CORPS US. ARMY
1-ANTENNA RELAY UNIT BC-442-A
SERIAL NO. 6701
ORDER NO. 595-WF-43
DATE (has no entry here)
STOCK NO. 20492-442-A
CONTRACTOR: COLONIAL RADIO CORP.
Note that the identification plate on the unit itself has serial number 6712.
The meter on this unit is made by GE and the needle does move when the unit is carefully shifted. It also includes the original capacitor in the base (50 MMF) but does not include any shock absorbing mounting base hardware.
There is 'M-1' stencilled in yellow on the face and there is also 'SC8249A' stamped in red.
I do not see any scratches, dents, modifications, etc. This is, in my opinion, incredibly clean and has never been used.
$45 will get it delivered to you via USPS parcel post.
Any interest out there? If not, it is off to that auction site...
