Hallicrafters Skyrider 23


 

 This pre-war american set harks back to 1938 and has a particularly flashy finish looking like a Cadillac dashboard.

In many ways, Hallicrafters and Eddystone are similar manufacturers, providing sets based on a standard tried and trusted mechanical design. The US company used a circular dial which I don't like as much as the open Eddystone linear display, and in this example, where the majority of the dial is hidden from view, one needs to be familiar with the frequency ranges in order to choose the correct wavelength range.
