überarbeitet am 6.11.2010
The SX-15 has a metal cabinet 45 x 23 x 28,5 cm wide, a hinged lid gives You access to the chassis for tube replacement or just to see how this wonderful radio works.
The receiver has a quite typical round metal disc dial with the frequency
marks engraved, this arrangement is found in several early Hallicrafters receivers.
In later receivers, the dial has been hidden behind a dial window. At the right,
You find the round "porthole" with the bandspread dial.
This prewar radio has a undistinguishable appearence typical for the early hallicrafters radio and is a nice collector's item to demonstrate the way of the development of all wave receivers - it days from those years, when every brand had their special receiver design, far away from the uniform look of modern receivers.
