I was taking a look back-in-time thru the catalog section in the 1957 ARRL Handbook and saw the ad for a Hallicrafters SR-1000 HF station. It included a SX-101 receiver, HT-32 xmtr and a HT-33 amplifier all housed in a beautifully styled, slanted-front, metal (free-standing) desk/cabinet.

Has anyone out there ever owned one of these "plug-n-play" stations? Am curious as to what it sold for, how many were manufactured (how many are left) and did it operate as sweet as it looks in the photo?  

It's probably a good thing I was only 8 years old in 1957. I don't think selling glass pop bottles and my 25 cent/month allowance would have been enough to buy one. My cat-wisker galena crystal radio would have to do. Thanks, Bill, wd0x
