International Microwave Symposium 2018

June 22, 2018

During the recent International Microwave Symposium 2018 held in Philadelphia, TechRocket Radio Museum exhibited one of its newest add ons to the collection, a Hallicrafters S-20R receiver. 

Manufactured from 1939 to 1945, with 9 tubes and covering four bands 54KHz to 44 MHz, this receiver is a true classice with its Machine Age design and the famous "h" logo on the speaker grille.

Introduced shortly before the US entered World War II, this radio played many wartime broadcasts and tunes during those troubled years in civilian and military facilities as "morale receiver".
