I am looking to see if I can get any information on this radio, as there is no model number, I did find the Battery compartment for a 9 volt it appears, and there is compartment for another battery but I am unsure on what size goes in it, a "C" size battery fits perfect but I am not sure if that is the proper batter for the unit.

If there is anyone out there that can give me some information I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You

    Here's a great website for you. It'll open on a page devoted to your radio. Look around though... It's a great site:

    Nice radio, it is the Emerson 838 made in 1955 and was a Hybrid with 2 transistors and 3 tubes. It was the dawn of the new fandangled "Transistor era"

    After much searching and with the help of the two folks above this comment I have finally determined that it is an Emerson Model 747, Thank You all for your help...
