FM Conversion Sapphire I II III IV V VI Radios   Price: $395
This conversion adds FM and Auxiliary Input to your 6V or 12V Sapphire and Big M radios using an Aurora Design FMC-2 module. The conversion provides excellent FM reception and auxiliary input (optional) for MP3 players, satellite radio, etc. The conversion is non-destructive, nothing removed from the radio and is installed inside the radio case (nothing seen). I'm currently converting Sapphire I (1962 to 1965), Sapphire III (1966), Sapphire V (1967) and Big M radios... I'm also repairing Sapphire II, IV and VI radios by replacing the FM section with the FMC-2 module. Please contact me for other radios.

Converted radios play in either AM/FM or AM/FM/Auxiliary Input modes. On AM radios, you select the mode by turning the radio Off & On within ~2 seconds. Preset buttons, volume, tone and tuning knobs all work exactly as before the conversion. A continuous hot wire is NOT required and the radio returns to the previously selected AM/FM/Aux mode. Auxiliary Input uses a standard 1/8" headphone jack which is normally mounted in the side of the radio.

This is the best FM conversion I've seen. Conversion price is approximately $395 for AM/FM and $445 for the AM/FM/Aux. These prices include some required maintenance to get your radio working correctly. If you've purchased repaired your radio with me in the last 5 years, contact me for a lower price.
