This is the Hallicrafters HA-2. It's a 2 Meter transverter designed to work with 10 Meter HF radios. A transverter takes a 10 meter radio signal, runs it through a mixer which converts it to 2 meters then amplifies it. The output on 2 is rated about 60 watts and operates "all mode". On the receive side, the 2 meter signal comes into a Nuvistor pre amp, then is mixed down to 10 meters where it is fed to your HF rig. I received better signal reports on the local 2 Meter machine with my Icom 735 and the HA-2 than I did with my HTX-242 mobile! Lastly, the P-26 power supplies are VERY hard to come by. Thanks to the Internet, I located a rebuildable unit. Now that I own an "all-in-one" HF/VHF/UHF radio, the old HA-2 is just fired up for special occasions.
The Hallicrafters SBT-100, 6 channel, crystal controlled, 2-18 MHz HF transceiver. This radio is rated for 100 watts output, covering SSB, AM and MCW modes. The radio is pre tuned for each frequency and has a separate antenna port for each or a common port for multi band antennas. This particular Hallicrafters model was designed for military or third world communications work. It could also be configured for remote or mobile operation.
This is my newest Hallicrafters acquisition, the S-40 receiver. It is a classic AM, CW and SSB short wave receiver from the late 1940's that many of us grew up listening to as kids. Frequency coverage is from below the AM broadcast band to above 30 MHz. This particular radio was originally purchased new, by a local Ham operator for his wife but, was sold to another Ham when he passed away, recently. I overhauled the receiver for the new owner who promised that I would have first shot at purchasing it should he grow tired of it. The radio was in such good, unmodified condition that I eventually traded a Yacht Boy 400 portable receiver for it. Unfortunately, the radio again needs work and is sitting on the shelf awaiting it's turn.
