I've just picked up an HQ-170 surplus to my needs.
It's condition? Generally dirty. No manual.

Front panel has corrosion. Water damage, I suspect.

I have another panel from my parts set HQ-170 I'll throw in.

RF gain pot is "tight", signs of corrosion on shaft and mounting nut.
I may have one from the aforementioned parts set.

Chassis is dirty, dusty. But will clean up nice. Dials are flat and clean.
The radio works! I've reformed the electrolytics, needs an alignment bad!
Clock works and the cover is intact. The setting shaft is missing.

What I'm looking for is one of the following:

Minerva Tropic Master receiver.

Knight Star Roamer receiver.

Heathkit HW-16 transceiver.

The trade set must be complete, working, relativly clean, chassis not bent, etc. I don't mind one that shows it's age, but don't want to have to re-paint, remove rust, etc.

Any takers??
