Need opinion on SX-117

When I was a teenager, I used to go and watch a friend work the WORLD
on SSB with an SX-117 and HT-44 combination (twins) barefoot to a cubical
quad about 20 feet high. He used to work into Asia etc. with NO trouble (from
GA) daily.

I had an SX-117 briefly back in the mid-70s by which time it was already
considered a BA(!) - it is not a bad receiver at all. One of the later, better
quality Hallis. So long as the alignment is OK, you will be pleased with it.

It is no 75-S3B, however, it won't cost you like a Collins either!
