Classic Hammarlund HQ-129 Amateur Receiver

This unit is from my personal collection, purchased last year to be restored. It is a functioning receiver in good condition with the following:

Pros

1.     Good sensitivity, receives well on all bands.

2.     Good selectivity with functioning crystal selectivity selector.

3.     Great audio volume.

4.     Well lit dial that has not yellowed badly.

5.     Cosmetically in good condition.

6.     Excellent cabinet.

Cons

1.     Loose Send/Receive switch, but functions.

2.     Crystal phasing control non-functioning; requires an IF strip adjustment.

3.     Beat oscillator control needs adjustment; also remedied with the IF strip adjustment.

4.     Bandspread control has slight slippage when tuning.

5.     Needs full frequency calibration.

6.     Front panel has some rubbed-off labeling.

Currently, this unit operates well and I was able to comfortably make several contacts with a transmitter on 80 and 40 meters. With a 5-minute warm-up, no frequency drifting occurs. Audio volume and fidelity are excellent in all modes. For serious CW work, I used headphones via an analog audio filter. For AM use, the widest bandwidth gives excellent fidelity.

Nice addition to any vintage ham shack. A great candidate to polish and make perfect.

No manual included. I am reluctant to let this unit go, but need to thin out the herd. This unit would be a great piece in any ham gear collection.

This is a heavy item! Local pickup preferred! Shipping is estimated in 1 box at 50 lb. This item will be well packed.
