This is the RFM3 from Roberts featuring LW, MW and FM reception. This is the newer version with more reliable components and a better audio section giving an output of 1 watt to the 72mm 8 ohm speaker. It is finished in black leather-cloth which is unmarked. There is a swivel base to allow rotation on the medium and long wave bands for best reception from the built in ferrite rod antenna. There is a telescopic aerial for FM reception which is original and straight with a knuckle joint to aid weak station reception.

The radio will undergone a major strip down and restoration. The teak side panels stripped and refinished with 3 coats of Danish oil. The top face polished to remove any scratches and look pristine. It uses a PP9 battery which although not included is still readily available from electrical retailers and some High Street stores. There is also a power jack fitted to accept an external supply which is available in my store as an optional extra at additional cost. I will test the set on all bands and tweak the FM alignment for best reception using a signal generator. The volume control will be stripped down and properly cleaned. All in all this will be a well sorted vintage radio which you will get years of use out of.
This lovely little radio is one of the last well made radios from Roberts. It was made of plywood and had teak sides. The newer ones have MDF which is not as durable.
I will include a copy of the Roberts Technical information sheet which gives alignment information, schematics etc. and also a copy of a Roberts brochure outlining the model.
