While we’re talking about big iron, I have a Hallicrafters SX-42 (receiver 540 kHz-108 MHz including an FM detector that works 54-108 MHz) that
I’m afraid I’m going to need to find a good home for. I had it on through a Variac a few months ago and didn’t blow anything up but it needs some loving care, to start with a new line cord because the old one is frayed and cracked.
I’d love to do some restoration on it but I just don’t think I have the time nor the desire to drag its excessive weight around much. Near broke
something (on me, not the receiver!) trying to get it into the building several months ago. But if you like big iron and full fidelity AM with the matching speaker, it’s in your ballpark.
No shipping. Pickup in Omaha, NE. email me off list.

Subject: RE: [CRTech] HF Ham Radio recommendation
What? Nobody recommended finding an old 250-1000W tube AM rig for putting on the air? Ham it up with big iron! For a receiver get yerself a big ol’ boatanchor
like a Hammarlund HQ-129X. J
