I was out combing some of the area's antique shops with my better half on Sunday looking for anything BUT ham radio related items when I stumbled upon a boat anchor. As soon as I saw the name Hallicrafters I got all excited. I didn't know what the S-38 was but I knew that at the price of $15 it was worth a gamble.
I have looked it up and found a lot of information on restoring that radio. I'm excited to be working with tubes again. I learned them when I was in Radio Technician training in the military but never actually used it in practice. This will also be my first boat anchor if you don't count the HW-8 I started out on many years ago. I am very excited to start this winter project...get that soldering iron going.
