    Default Mighty Mite radio?

    IMG_20171029_154957486_HDR.jpg

    Well, somehow things didn't work out quite right in attaching the picture the first time.. Anyway, here is my 1962 MMA1. It was a "field find" in that it had been sitting for about 50 years outside. Covered somewhat, but......! All original, though. Anyway, my question is, does anyone know what radio the Mite would have used? I've found evidence that I think mine had a radio in it. But I have no idea what model/type, etc. Antenna mount type?? Marine specific, or? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    There is a mite displaying a radio kit at this club site, www.flmvpa.org I don't know if it's correct but may be a place to start.

    If you provide pictures of the hole patterns and distance between the holes, we will be able to tell you what was installed.
