Wow, this thing is heavy, but what a great receiver. This 20 tube Hammarlund receiver came out in 1951 and was used (and probably still is somewhere)by the military, FAA, and the CIA; compares favorably to my R-390A (which it was designed to compete with);sensitivity similar to my R-9000. Unique because of continuous coverage from .54 to 54 mh and Art and his boys could of learned a lot from Hammarlund on tuning mechanisms; the SP-600 flywheel tuning is a joy and an ease to use as one "swoop" can send you from one end of the band to the other. If you have one of these, consider a outboard SSB adapter; I use a TMC 591A but the PD-1 designed by Ron Hankins will work as it has the same IF as the 390A. Highly recommended; Try to get one with a cabinet and a truss
