|Comments||Hacker were makers of high class radio equipment, and lasted until the late 1970s. There main competition was from Roberts and Dynatron. The Herald is a long and medium wave design, but benefits from a large loudspeaker. The set uses two (expensive) PP9 batteries, to give a +/- 9V supply. The circuit is fairly standard, but the audio output stage is mounted on a seperate PCB. These sets are often found in a non-working state, due to failure of the AF117 transistor in the mixer stage.|
