I have a mid-era Hammarlund HQ-129-x. It sounds great if I don't count the motorboating. But the problem is in the middle bands. I got the radio way out of alignment, and managed (I think) to get the IF working.
I receive strong stations (folded, loaded, irregular-dipole) okay, no images. Even the blasting AM station on 1450 sounds great, so long as I throttle way back on the sensitivity control. I only hear it on 1450, so the selectivity is good. No images!
But the weirdest part is: I get WWV interference across the bands, all six, but it's the middle four that gets it the most. I can pick up the WWV signal when it's clear, and it interferes with itself. I could understand if 1450 were the noisy cricket, but... WWV?
How can I snuff out WWV from wherever it's not supposed to be?
