The Hammarlund HQ-140-X general coverage receiver tunes shortwave in four bands: .54-1.32, 1.32-3.2, 3.2-5.7, 5.7-10, 10-18 and 18-31 MHz. Bandspread: 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters Other enhancements include: antenna trimmer, noise limiter, RF gain, S-meter, stand-by and AVC on/off. This radio does not have a built in speaker. There are speaker terminals on the rear panel. The HQ-140-X was the successor to the HQ-129-X.

The later model Hammarlund HQ-140-XA featured better sensitivity, smoother tuning and better dial accuracy.

best ban scanning reciever

Hammarlund HQ-140X, Desktop Shortwave receiver

so i have owned many shortwave receivers this one was an absolute pleasure to use. The tuning is silky smooth with some weight behind the nob. This is the kind for receiver you can do a quick band scan and go back and hone in on that station barley reachable. Crystal selectivy makes picking things out of the nose very easy. i owned this radio from the early 1070's though 1980 and wish i had never sold it. it does lack true ssb but easily copy ssb using the bfo. The audio quality on this receiver is noting short of amazing. mine lacked a bit in the higher frequencies, so not giving this a perfect 5. but an all around great receiver for listening to those foreign broadcast stations and for ham bands.
