Hilberling PT 8000 A


... if you get one and don't like it, I'll take it off your hands for a reasonable fee. If you get that violet one, forget it.

They look nice but at nearly 14,000 Euros :eek:. Perhaps they are actually starting to offer these for sale now. They were introduced in 2007 I believe but couldn't meet European spec for emissions so they were shelved. I see they are back on the Hilberling site now so I wonder who the first will be to get one.

Okay, a decade has passed since this thread originated.
I know no one here has purchased one or we’d have heard about it. Has anyone seen one in person?
Heard it called the Bentley or Rolls Royce of ham equipment. Sure looks like it.

I saw it at the Dayton Hamvention. With its matching amplifier. Rolls is a good analogy. Buttons, knob action, fit and finish, “Elegant”.

At the time, it’s reciever performance was one of the best you could buy.

In my opinion the Hiberling, like a Rolls Royce, strokes some people’s vanity and ego. Everyone knows it was expensive.

There were other radios for sale at the time with similar specs at less than half the price.
