Hammarlund HQ 170A

The HQ 170A is a Ham Band only receiver in working condition. It is in good
condition. It covers 160 meters through 10 meters. Receiving modes are CW,
AM, and SSB. It will be supplied with 

a copied manual. This receiver is ideal for the beginning AM operator and
vintage SSB or CW.

All the tubes have been checked. An RF and an IF alignment has been
performed. The unit has been tested on the air. The S-Meter zero pot could
be replaced, but is working. Asking $225.00.

Remember, this radio is about 50 years old. There is no warranty that
accompanies this sale. I have tried to represent the radio accurately. The
radio has been repaired and is working, but has not been restored. Needed
parts have been replaced and cleaning performed. 


Shipping will be through Fed Ex or USPS. The radio will be insured and
packed well. Shipping and handling will be $45.00 continental US.  


Best Regards,




Near San Diego
