Looking at the thread and tink you have a prize.

Something makes me believe that I might have a used 6x6 in a box downstairs. I will certainly have a look this weekend and it's yours if you need it...... I won't

I have the Majestic version with the same chassis. The eye tube when working is pretty cool. Here is a picture of mine.

You just need a piece of wire, maybe 6 feet or so to get very good reception. Short wave will require longer, but I don't think I've tried that band on this radio.
