Hallicrafters SX-96

The Hallicrafters SX-96 is very similar to the SX-100 without a few of the features like notch filter and crystal calibrator. This radio was quite a mess and required some repairs after the restoration was complete. The 2nd converter sub-chassis had to be replaced. A parts SX-100 provided the replacement sub-chassis. The sub-chassis is very difficult to work on because it has to be un-wired and removed from the chassis. The radio is not a looker, but works well and has strong reception. As is common on the Hallicrafters with Bakelite knobs, the band spread knob is chipped. It could use a new paint job on the chassis lid.
