superb receiver

Hallicrafters SX-28 Super Skyrider, Desktop HF/VHF Receiver

This receiver is an excellet example of the so called boatanchors sets of its time. If it is well aligned the SX28 offers excellent sensitivity and selectivity. It was the top of the line commercial and military receiver in the ealy 40s and many saw service overseas.
