Where would AM be without a great receiver? In an effort to gain some interesting traction on this subject, I would like to encourage our contributors to post photos of their receivers and perhaps share a story or two, especially if it involves restoration! Now there's a part of this hobby that makes me leap to my feet! Past, present and most certainly future, it doesn't matter, show and tell! I have been a collector for a long time. My very first receiver was a Hallicrafters S-19 "Sky Buddy" and it thrilled me to no end, tuning in the world. It was my first experience with the magic of shortwave radio. It didn't take long for me to outgrow the S-19, so when my Elmer Willard Haskell who held the calls, W7HFR & AC7D, offered me a deal on a Hammarlund HQ-129X I jumped on it right then. In 1977, $75 dollars was a lot of money but I made it happen. That began my lifelong love for Hammarlund receivers which continues to this day. I have also been a hard core collector of Collins equipment which came to a head about 4 years ago when I decided to dump it all after getting tired of the CCA nonsense. Still, I must have owned just about every variant of the 51J's, 75A's and most of the S-line stuff. Marvelous equipment but in terms of what appeals to my senses, Hammarlund, Marconi, RCA, National & Racal are the pinnacle in my experience. However, my one remaining Collins receiver is the mighty R-390 which is my go to receiver when anything else won't cut it. It's hands down the best AM receiver that I have ever owned. Here are some images from my website: http://www.n6yw.com/tour.php Enter the Super Pro... For ease of band cruising and arguably one of the best built of the "contemporary" receivers, the Super Pro series has few equals. My collection comprises of the earliest examples starting with the SP-10, SP-100 and SP-200, all of which are complete and in various stages of repair or electronic restoration. I have owned several SP-600's and my best restoration work was a near basket case that looked horrible. Today, it looks brand new after nearly 100 hours of work invested. Here is a before and after comparison shown below. As you can see, it requires a lot of patience and dedicated work, and the result is well worth the effort. When I get to it, I will post some photos of the entire collection when the shack is completed. More to come! Your turn.
