I bought this Hammarlund HQ-145-X on eBay. I paid a little more than I planned, but I got tired of losing auctions. Got it Monday, and there is little cosmetic damage. Dirt, on the other hand, is a different story. The cover is well ventilated with thousands of holes, and 50+ years of dust build-up was on the top of the chassis. The underneath side was clean. It did work – I heard signals with just a wire off the back of the radio. Audio gain pot was noisy, some controls not real smooth.
