This is a cool receiver to operate on CW !! Worked quite a few folks running them on 10M AM as well!
This is the early "red letter" variant (late 1940's) as evidenced by the "Hallicrafters" and "HQ-120-X" being in red letters. This early variant did not have bandspread for 15M, as 15M wasn't a ham band when the radio was produced. Hammarlund later produced bandspread dials that incorporated 15M which could be refit on earlier models. This receiver was produced between 1946 and 1953 and is a single conversion superheterodyne using 11 tubes. Frequency range was 0.54 Mc to 31 Mc. Weight is 47 pounds.
