This is a very nice antique short wave radio. It is a Hallicrafters S-20R which is in very good condition cometically. The case looks very good and the dials and meter are in good condition. Amazingly, it actually works—SOMEWHAT!!....When powered up all the tubes and panel lights light up properly. But, there is a very loud 60cyl hum in the speaker. I held one lead of a 2 meter mobile antenna to the antenna terminal and could actually hear signals on several bands but could not understand them because of the hum. When i used a headphone, the hum was still present but i could understand what i was hearing. Dont know if bfo was working. I think someone smarter than me could easily fix this up and have great antique radio!
