Heathkit SW-717 General Coverage Receiver (SOLID STATE) - $60 (Plano)


condition: good
make / manufacturer: Heathkit
model name / number: SW-717

I am offering a Heathkit SW-717 general coverage receiver / shortwave radio for sale. These radios were produced between 1971 and 1981. This radio is a nice piece of nostalgia and is in good working order. Since I acquired this radio earlier this year, I have cleaned it and repaired the band selector switch. Two of the four small knobs on the front panel are cracked. I am including a new set of four Marshall-style silver capped set-screw knobs which will be a good fit for the quarter-inch shafts. As of today, the original knobs are still installed, but putting on the new knobs can be done in about five minutes. Radio has a ferrite rod antenna on the back panel, although you will get optimum performance with an external antenna such as a loop. The front panel is in excellent condition and the backlights also work. Speaker and power supply are integrated. Note that this radio will receive AM and shortwave frequencies 550 Kilohertz through 30 Megahertz. Integrated BFO. My lowest price is $60 cash, firm. Serious inquiries only - thanks.
