This great 1951 vintage communications set has been fully restored and is in excellent working condition. It has the standard AM broadcast band as well as three shortwave bands covering up to 44MHz. The S-52 is considered to be one of the rarer Hallicrafters radios with 8 tubes and a ballast.
This set has been fully electrically restored including recapping. All of the tubes are in top condition (several were replaced with stronger tubes for better operation) and the set is fully functional. As part of the restoration the original power cord was replaced with a heavy duty 3-wire grounded cord which was wired for safer operation. In addition, this set was aligned to optimize reception.
This set pulls in many radio stations easily. An external antenna and ground are required for best results.
It is in very fine condition and would be a wonderful, fully working addition to any collection.
A complete schematic for this unit will be supplied with the unit to aid in any future servicing years from now.
Please contact us with any questions or to inquire if this set is still available. We will be most happy to supply any additional details.
