Product Description

This Hallicrafters SX-88 Communications Receiver, is in Collector Quality Condition, and is S/N 100

This Receiver has been Serviced by James Millsap W9CTO. Jim is one of the best service guys in the country, for Collins, Johnson and vintage radio gear. All his test gear is certified every year and he does more than a thorough job.  

He tested all the tubes and replaces any weak or gassy tubes with new ones.

At that time a brand new replacement belt was installed. Most SX-88s have worn out or rotten belts and they are impossible to find. Without the belt the receiver is unusable.

The replacement belt installed, was from a run of belts special made, and with much better material than the old original belts were made of, and should last much longer than the original belt.

Jim Did a complete alignment, and it is performing at or better than factory specifications.

The cosmetic condition is beautiful. The cabinet appears to have the original paint and has only a few tiny marks.

 The chassis is nice and clean with no corrosion and only a few discolored areas. 

This is one of the nicest SX-88 receivers I have seen.

PLEASE check with me before you purchase this receiver for payment instructions.

I would prefer a pick up for this item but I will ship it at the buyers risk for any damage insurance will not cover.

I am one of the best in the business shipping heavy vintage radio gear for over 30 years, and it will be packed very well and should be okay. I have shipped a few SX-88s  before.

The shipping estimate is just that, an estimate but it will be close depending on the address I ship to.

This is a great deal on an exceptional Hallicrafters SX-88, Don't let this one get away!
