Midland 1 Watt Transceiver - Model 13-700
This is a two-channel AM transceiver, apparently produced for CB. Inside the back cover, it says that it’s powered by eight 1.5-volt pen light cells. The battery holder is absent – but the connector fits a normal 9-volt battery. With a 9-volt battery, the transmitter produced RF (which I did not measure) and the receiver made a receiver sort of noise. During a brief test, I didn’t hear any actual signals, just noise and sometimes not even that. The radio may not be happy with 9 volts when it wants 12 volts.
There’s a slide switch to select the channel, F1 or F2. I only heard noise on F1, so it may have only one channel configured. It may not be a legal CB channel. No promises. Buyer accepts all responsibilities for the unit.
Fully extended, the antenna is a rather impressive 55-1/2 inches in length.
The unit is offered as a curiosity only. There are no promises of correct operation or anything else and the buyer accepts all responsibility for the unit’s use. If you are mistaken from a character in a 1970s movie, don’t blame me. It does seem to be an interesting oddity from another era, though.
Seriously, this is a really cool looking radio, especially with the antenna extended. Use caution if you wander around with the antenna extended, watch for electric wires, clotheslines and such. It is a marvelous and beautiful LONG whip antenna!
