Hallicrafters S series Shortwave Receivers

Model numbers starting with an "S" in the Hallicrafters shortwave receivers series indicate, that the set is equipped with coil filters, they are usually cheaper and their selectivity is inferior to the one found in sets with crystal filters. A "-U" suffix in the model number indicates that the set is equipped with a "Universal transformer", it can be operated from different mains and is suited to connect to 220V mains as found in western Europe.
