Thanks for providing all this information. I am a "Newbie" to the T/O and am learning on the fly. So far, I am really impressed with the reception and sound of the unit. I think I have stumbled upon a new, and very addictive, hobby.

Thanks again for your help.

I have two Zenith T/O model 7000/2 and just purchased a B600. I have always found these radios facinating since I was very young. For the model B600 I am still looking for a economical battery type replacement. From what I have seen so far I like Jim Poitivient set-up. I have not been able to reach him yet. With the model 7000 replacement batteries is not an issue as it takes 8 of them.

Keep up the good work

This is a very informative site. I especially appreciate the advise about replacing the selenium rectifier on my L600 as I wouldn't have touched it being SS. Great job

What a welcome resource you have established! I was on assignment for National Geographic in Montana in the 1980s, and found a Trans-Oceanic for sale in a store calling itself "Old Stuff." I hauled the T-O around in my car's truck for the next three months, then brought it home where I did what about all an amateur can do, which was to clean and polish it thoroughly, and carefully. And wonder of wonders, it still captures a signal. Recently I came across a photograph of Ernest Hemingway and two housemen bent over a table at his home in Cuba, ca 1949, listening to hurricane reports on his Trans-Oceanic. And there was my Zenith model. Your site will help me resore this treasure to full working order. Thank you and best wishes.

This is a very interesting web site. I hope one day to acquire a R-520A/URR TO.

The information on the 1L6 page that only the TO used the 1L6 is inaccurate. A family of portable military sets (Receiver RR-2 of RS-1, R-1004/GRC-109, and R-1004A/GRC-109) use the 1L6. The R-1004A was made in 1969 and saw use in Vietnam with Army Special Forces. That accounts for the military surplus 1968-made 1L6 supply.

Well, this is a great site and a fantastic TO resource! I have an 8G005ZT1 something-or-other and it's a great radio, fun to work on. These radios are a superb product of human ingenuity.

My first T/O was a 7000Y I purchased as a serviceman in Thailand. It got beat-up pretty bad and given away. I bought my current Royal 7000 from Ebay about five months ago. It came malfunctioning but was easily repaired with a new IF transistor. This radio is priceless! I've received AM radio from 21 states without effort. The shortwave reception beats out my Panasonic RF-2200.
