Hallicrafters HT-17 reviews

HT-17 My First Rig

Hallicrafters HT-17, HF Transmitter

I had an HT-17 on loan from another ham. It was my first transmitter. My receiver was a Knight Kit Ocean Hopper. The HT-17 was easy to tune and gave me much happiness. It as later replaced by the Johnson Viking Adventurer transmitter and my new receiver was the Hallicrafters S-40A.
