Hallicrafters SX-62 (1948)

Hallicrafters SX-62 (1948)

This is a 16-tube, six-band AM/FM/Shortwave Receiver. I have replaced all the electrolytic and wax capacitors. I changed three tubes out and some resistors. It plays both FM bands and AM. I can induce frequencies into the Shortwave bands but it picks up only a few stations. This could be because it needs a large outside antenna. Because of this I am listed it for what I bought and put in it. It probably could be fixed by a Ham radio specialist but even so the parts on it are worth quite a bit to someone with a broken or missing parts SX-62. It about 65 lbs so shipping can be costly. $175.00. (0040419)

My goal is to give you a great radio that you can play for years to come.  If the radio has any flaws or parts that are not original, you will know it before the purchase.  All the radios I sell have been electronically restored which means the following:

1) All tubes/transistors are checked and replaced when necessary.
2) All electrolytic and wax capacitors are replaced.
3) Resistors are checked and replaced if they are out of tolerance.
4) If the speaker cone is torn beyond a simple fix, it is sent out and replaced completely.
5) The tuning capacitor, volum , bass/treble controls are cleaned and lubricated.
6) The radio is aligned and tuned to play at peak performance.
7) Once the radio is restored, it is tested for three hours.
8) Before it is shipped, it is re-checked and tested, and will be played and listened to for three more hours.
9) The radio is professionally packed and shipped by USPS Priority 2 to 3 day service. It will be insured for sale value.

If the radio does not play when it arrives, return it for a full refund.  If you are not satisfied with the radio when it arrives send it back for a refund less shipping costs.  The radio is also guaranteed for six months assuming it is treated well.
