I tested it when I bought it and have just tested it now and it is in working order, as you can see from the photograph of the light, which is very rare in my experience. I will post fully insured and it will be carefully packed (please see my feedback) but these sets are 60 years old so please bear that in mind. The only negative is one of the little aerials in the handset is missing, I think it has dropped inside the handset because the handset rattles. They serve no purpose other than decoration.
The box and packaging are in great condition, I genuinely think this is one of the best sets out there. The item "Vintage Merit Dan Dare Space Control Radio Station 1960's Boxed & Working" is in sale since Monday, July 19, 2021.
