Hallicrafters S-38B (1947-1952)
Hallicrafters S-38B (1947-1952)
Hallicrafters was big in the amateur radio business for a great many years. The S-38B was their entry-level receiver in the late 40s and early 50s. Like all Hallicrafters equipment, it is well engineered and well made. Broadcast and two short wave bands, with coarse and fine tuning. I did what I could with the finish on the cabinet. It's not perfect, but pretty good for its age, and actually looks a little better than in the photographs. I gave it a full set of high testing tubes, replaced all of the capacitors, most of the resistors and gave it a full and careful alignment. I had to make the back cover as it was missing. Receiver sensitivity is very good, and the sound is not bad for a communications receiver. All in all a very sharp little radio at a decent price. 13"W x 7"H x 8"D.  $199.00. (1680053)
