Hallicrafters SW-500 (1961)


Hallicrafters SW-500 (1961)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This is a single conversion, four tube superheterodyne general coverage receiver. There are four bands with continuous coverage from 540 KHz to 31 MHz: 540-1600 KC, 1.6-4.4 MHz, 4.4-11.5 MHz, 10-31 MHz. The analog slide-rule frequency display has been imprinted with a guide to the frequency settings for foreign, WWV, government, aviation, and other exotic stations. It works quite well on all bands and the bandspread tuning is a nice feature. The BFO works for listening to CW and SSB; the headphone jack works. There is an internal ferrite rod antenna for the broadcast band; the whip antenna is for short wave. It has a connection for use with an external long-wire antenna. All electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents and the original selenium rectifier was replaced with a silicon diode. It should perform very well for many years. There are some minor blemishes in the paint and some scratches on the left side of the aluminum on the front, overall very nice cosmetic condition. If you wanted one of these when you were younger (I did) now is your chance! Compact at 13-1/2"W x 5-1/2"H x 8"D.
