Hallicrafters Company began manufacturing the SX-9 Super Skyrider in 1936. It sold for $90.
I purchased this radio on EBAY in February, 2015. It works perfectly!
I found this identical model under the Christmas tree when I was 12 years old. It was the best gift ever! My father's friend gave it when he heard I was interested in radio. This nice man committed suicide a few weeks later.
I used the radio for many years. Eventually, I got a ham license and graduated to modern equipment.
