Good Receiver  Time owned: more than 12 months
This was an unexpected surprise. A friend sent one to me after he bought it on Ebay for about $65.00 with the matching speaker. He thought it was a general coverage and did not realize it was a ham band only rx.

I was surprised by the audio and quality of the rx, a good standby rx and it looks great! analogue orange dial and S meter. It's looks are similar to the SB-104.

A good standby receiver to have around.

Receiver with a surprise  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought mine off of E-bay, on a whim. 'Cause it was cheap ($60.00) had nothing to do with it! After cleaning the "plug in, plug out" cards it took right off. Stable, and sounds very good. All I did, was parallel a 6mfd cap with the existing avc cap, to give it slower avc. For a plain vanilla Heathkit (you really don't expect that much) This is a Nice radio. I'm glad I own it. Beware CW/SSB only, no AM detector.
