Please Put Drake 2-B Serial Numbers Here!

Let the count begin! Folks have been sending in Drake 2-B serial numbers. They've been coming in via the blog, via e-mail, twitter tweets, Facebook messages, carrier pigeons, etc. I'm afraid I might miss some precious numbers. So let's put them here. If you have some, and I don't have them below, you can post them as a comment to this blog post. When we get enough, we'll turn them over to Scott, K6AUS, for analysis using the same mathematics used to determine the number of German tanks during WWII.

Mine: 11976
Aramand's three (scandalous to have THREE!):
2599, 5149, and 12038
WB4NCT's:
8682
From Rogier's e-bay search: 8069
Another from Rogier: 5153
More from Rogier: 11222, 9041, 9180
From WB4HFN's web site (thanks Rogier!): 2008, 4025, 9289, 11059, 12060
WA5DJJ's:
5254
N5JKY's: 10616
Stephen NM7J / HS0ZHB 12955, 10328
Pete, VE2XPL's: 8873
WA5BDU's:
4950

  5. Hi Bill

    I have #2532 - an early 2B.
    If the radio does not have the "red" scale slider button, you are in the running for one of the oldest 2B Receivers.

    I also own ##4226 with slider button.

  7. I have serial number 2258, with the matching 2B Q-multiplier/speaker. Bought it around 1963, used, from Universal Radio, when they were on Third street in Columbus, OH. Just got it out of mothballs, and it fired right up! After hitting all the tube sockets and switches with tuner cleaner, it seems to be hearing great! Ugly thing - I love it. ;-)
