Hallicrafters S-38D receiver in excellent working condition. Looks better than most that I
have seen.
One of  the most popular shortwave radios ever made, the charming Hallicrafters S-38
introduced many thousands of people to shortwave and CW listening. It appeared in 1946,
immediately after the World War II consumer radio hiatus, and was priced at only $47.50,
making it the entry-level receiver for the Hallicrafters line.

Using only six tubes, the S-38 is a transformerless AC/DC radio with a metal cabinet and
integrated speaker. Its compact size and low cost made it very attractive to radio-hungry
consumers in the postwar years. Following the original S-38 were models S-38A through S-
38E, remaining in production until 1961.

Despite its simplicity, the S-38 is a "hot" radio, offering great sensitivity. Like more
expensive shortwave receivers, it has a separate bandspread tuner, automatic noise limiter
(ANL), and beat frequency oscillator (BFO) for CW listening. It covers frequencies from .54
Mhz to 32 Mhz in four bands. Many collectors consider S-38 the most desirable model in
this line, since later models lack the BFO feature.
