Hallicrafters S20R 'Sky Champion'

This was gifted to me by a YL who's now a silent-key.

I repaired & used this beautiful WWII RX till I got hold of a Phillips D2999 PLL synthesized general coverage HF RX with a resolution of 1KHz and  a tunable BFO.

The S20R, however, is still in working condition though I've replaced the original speaker with a separate inductor/ line filter (in place of the old field coil) and a normal 8 ohms speaker.

This RX is ok up to 40 Mts. Any serious work above 40Mts will call for better image rejection and sensitivity.

Here's a brief description.
