A very interesting and beautiful oddball — an AM radio combined with a Citizens Band transceiver. Beautiful for the large and rich reverse-painted plastic dial area, nearly 2 inches by 3 inches in size and red, black and silver in color. Interesting for it being also a CB walkie-talkie: the transmit/receive crystals on this example are 27.005 MHz and 26.550 MHz.
