Sometimes, reversing the line cord will negate the hum problem. Be sure to replace all caps, especially electrolytics in the audio section. I assume you have already changed the filter cap and have the new one(s) wired in correctly. Check for cold solder joints and good ground connections especially in the audio stages. 73 and let us know what you find. John, W4AWM In a message dated 8/4/2014 2:49:00 P.M.

The unit is in nice condition outside, the panel is nice, however, it has evidently gotten well used and the inside is a bit "scorched" but I do not think it burnt up any major components, however, I have not powered it up to test. It is a unusual hallicrafters piece and I would imagine a collectible item only since more modern ways exist to accomplish what this unit is supposed to do. That is not to say that I don't think it will work. I have a original manual, not a TM but like one dated Oct.1951 printed by hallicrafters, included.

You "do NOT" have to be operating Hallicrafters equipment to participate. No accounting for taste! (LOL!) All we ask is that you have an interest in vintage radio or audio or test equipment. If it happens that you are operating vintage Hallicrafters equipment, so much the better. As our backup NCS, N8AZC, Mike in Ohio is with his SX-100, HT-32B and Heathkit SB-220. The propagation thus far this Summer has sucked like a Hoover Dust Buster on steroids! You could get dizzy just watching the S-Meter dance around like a Tango dancer that someone dumped a berito full of those HOT Mexican chili beams into their shorts! The air noise at times sounded like you were broadcasting live from the center of a USAF nuclear strike field! Then every once in a while the propagation entities would lighten up on us and the short and medium range propagation would be great! Then everyone sat there in front of their Ham gear staring at the desk mike unsure whether to key it or not! Then when one keyed up, everyone keyed up, and we had a pile up butt high to a T-Rex! So drift on by tomorrow and join us for some fun, facts, fibs and technical facts on something. One just never knows what he/she will hear during the Net! Be there or be a square wave dude!

I have never seen one! Glen, K9STH website: http://k9sth.net On Saturday, August 30, 2014 8:57 AM, "Charlie T, K3ICH" wrote: My gut feel is that the plastic dial SX-99 was the earlier production. If I had to guess based on my personal observation, I'd say the aluminum dials were about 75% of the total SX-99 product runs.
