I recently inherited a 1940s era communications receiver from the estate of my great-uncle. It is a Hallicrafters S-39 Sky Ranger, and I want to restore it so it can be used safely again. I was able to find the manual that originally came with it on BAMA (The Boat Anchor Manual Archive), but it was also used by the US Military during WWII, and there is a govt service manual for it. It was an R80 to the military, and the manual is PB48233, but that is as far as I have been able to get. How do I locate someplace that has a copy of this technical manual so I can get a copy made from it?
Can anyone recommend an internet retailer who carries the latest in "generic" wares from China? I'm looking for a HD radio, and I can see that they are being manufactured in China for the export market, but cannot find anyone offering them at retail. I'm not interested in the "brand" radios offered by Best Buy, Amazon etc.
