FOR SALE: Extra nice S38C shortwave receiver - many hams used
these as their very first receiver.
Very good condition. All original knobs etc. The S38C uses six
tubes, and has a metal cabinet and built-in speaker. Its
compact size and low cost maakes this a very attractive set.
The S-38 models were in production until 1961.
Despite its simplicity, the S-38 is a "hot" radio, offering
good 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.
With distinctive semi-circular dials, the S-38 through S-38C
models are very recognizable. The S-38C has cool-looking shiny
gray, hammertone paint. Excellent working condition.
Available for $65.00 plus shipping. USA only.
