its going to be a while before I get to it, still in the back of my truck. I want to finish up on that GE roundie before I get into another set. Maybe in a couple weeks before I can get any more details on it. Between this one and the 2 other 5's I have (both are pretty ruff and I have not touched them so don't know much about them), I am pretty sure I will be able to get it going. My next oldest nice set is a CTC-9 with a good 21CYP22 so it would be nice to have something older. I like the sets with the doors on the front, nice protection for the CRT's.

Great score! That Wingate is very nice looking, where did you find it? My Wingate is on the NEVER sell list, they are just so pretty, it's the best 5 you can get IMHO I hope your 21AXP22 is good. It took me about 3 years to find a good one for mine but it was worth it to keep it un-modified.

I wonder if it migrated south with a retiring couple who may have bought it new. Wouldn't it be a gas to find it was purchased on Radio Row?

Dave,

Welcome to the Wingate club. Seems a lot of this model were sold and are turning up. It was RCA's most expensive CTC-5 model. I have the Maple finish but have also owned a Wingate in the French Walnut finish. Very nice find.
