I'd also like to find a working Hallicrafters S29 receiver similar to this one:
As seen in a video on YouTube:


I THINK the one I had in England in the 1960s May have been green?

>> I have to agree with you on that, Rob, plus it gives me an excuse to tell my AR-88 story ;-)    I got the AR-88 for "free", but had to pay the shipping cost from a boys school in the UK, which obviously wasn't anywhere cheap.    This was back in the very early days of the original BA List, and the seller indicated that the receiver had seen service in the codebreaking effort of WWII.   So, without a shred of additional proof, my own imagination has always conjured up a vision of it once being operated by the skilled ladies of Station X...feeding intercepts to the codebreakers that helped win the war.

Not because it's anything special, but because it's the first shortwave receiver I ever heard, and you can't un-make that initial impression.   While I was mostly confined to using headphones to avoid annoying the grown-ups it belonged to, I well remember the harsh buzz of the jammers, shortwave channel-marker recordings, WWV (when it was still in Beltsville, MD), and of course hams talking on AM in their own strange and exciting language.
