Very rare short wave radio 




GALAXY mesa 9000


In very good condition


This NORDMENDE GALAXY mesa 9000 is made in Western-Germany in 1972 and it is technically and optically in really good condition, with only very small use traces.  It’s very hard to find a second by this shape. The radio is absolutely clean and free of grease or nicotine residues.

 The radio was in bad condition when I got it, but I got it technically and optically back in great condition. The side panels on the radio were scratched. (See penultimate photo) I removed this and took it to a varnisher, the result was great. A matte black finish goes great with the radio. I also changed all the fuses, replaced the dial lights, connected a new power cable and replaced some weak capacitors. (Last photo) Now the radio works very well again. All chrome parts and the antennas are in absolutely great condition. There is a very minor crack under the on/off switch.

Look at the pics.

This solid and heavy Radio with his combination from chrome, aluminium and the green station scale is a very big eye catcher. All inscriptions on the scale and all other inscriptions on the radio are present and clear. All knobs and pushbuttons are shining as new and work good. The tuning and battery indicator works perfect

The tuning of all bands is smooth-running and exact. The receipt on all bands is very good, especially on FM.
