Even though I have several ham rigs and nifty tiny portables to listen to, it's still fun to listen to the SW broadcast bands on old gear. Radio Australia an RNZI sound great on on an Hallicrafters. There is enough English broadcasting to occupy my attention span and SW will never die, just change.

Sorry, I'm a bad proofreader. Meant "on an old Hallicrafters".

I agree! You just cannot knock Hallicrafters' rich audio-it just adds to the enjoyment.

My first radio was a Hallicrafters S-40. Got it from a Elmer in my mom's church congregation. I'd been bugging her for a SW radio, but the prices gave her sticker shock. This was in 1986, when I was 12. The Halli was sitting in this guy's closet, so it was mine. I used it for a while, but eventually the dial cord broke, and the rectifier (they were using a 4 pin 80 tube as a rectifier in 1946, go figure) died. I never could get it to work right afterward-those radios were a bear to align. By that time I had a Realistic DX-440. Used that until I got a DX-396, and eventually a Degen 1102, domestic Chinese version. The 440 now resides with a family of Ukrainian immigrants, who listen to Russian domestics with it. The 396 went to Iraq with a welder of hillbilly armor.
