This is an Eldico R-104 ham radio receiver, and the matching T-102 transmitter, along with the P-109 power supply. These are part of a system known as the Type S-119. A control unit known as the M-135 made up the whole set - which is not shown. Eldico emulated Collins Radio, and these radios bear a strong resemblence inside and out to the Collins S line. The set covers 80,40,20,15,10 meters and MARS frequencies. This is a US made, vintage tube radio set, same vintage as Collins S line. Eldico was started by former Collins employees.
