Hallicrafters Items

 

These first two photographs are of a Hallicrafters Short Wave Time Selector slide rule. The set of instructions that are located on the front read as follows, 1. Set City opposite Time, 2. Read Time opposite any City. In the picture on the left, the 12 noon setting at the top of the photograph is set for San Francisco as if the time there was 12 noon, then reading the chart, we can see that it is 6am in Sydney or 3am in Bangkok. We could do this all the way around the dial and be able to tell what time it is in a number of different cities.

The photograph on the right is of the rear and has a number of useful guides for the Ham radio operator or Short Wave listener. For example, the mode designator for CW is A1 and television is A5. More reading on the back reveals that the frequencies for WWV(back then) is 2.5, 5.0, 10.0, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35Mcs. There is also a number of emergency frequencies given for both CW and Phone modes in the Amateur bands, along with Marine and Civil Air patrol frequencies. The charts on the back also show the TV broadcast frequencies as well as the FM broadcast frequencies and what is on the VHF portion(108Mc - 132Mc) of the band and the Marine beacons. At the bottom is a Teletype chart showing the figures and letters and then the numbers that indicate the marking impulses.
