Latest and greatest of a great series featuring the widest frequency coverage of any receiver currently available (50 kc to 54 mc). Voice CW, NFM (with adaptor). Dual conversion on all frequencies above 7 mc (ranges A, AA, AB, AC, AD, B).


  • Twelve permeability-tuned circuits in the three 455 kc IF stages for sharp selectivity.

  • Current-regulated heaters in the high frequency oscillator and first mixer.

  • High frequency oscillator and S-meter amplifier are voltage regulated.

  • Extra coil sets available to provide additional frequency coverage on special ranges.

  • Crystal filter provides several degrees of selectivity with phasing notch to reject heterodyne interference.

  • Has double-ended automatic noise limiter which is equally effective on both voice or code reception.

  • Has two RF stages for better sensitivity and selectivity (image ratio).

  • Single knob controls reception of CW, AM or NBFM signals or connects audio amplifier to Phono input.

  • Adjustable CW oscillator control for CW reception.

  • Panel-controlled antenna input trimmer.

  • Panel switch for choice of 100 kc or 1000 kc calibration marker signals.

    PW knob has worm gear drive box. Large dial with changing numbers gives a logging scale from 0-500 equivalent to a scale length of 12 feet, In addition, a slide-rule direct-reading scale is ganged with the PW dial to show frequency setting directly. The scale drum can be rotated to change scales. Plug-in coils for separate ranges.


    A push-pull audio output stage delivers 8 watts at less than 10% distortion. Output impedance is 8 and 500 ohms. A high impedance phono-jack is located on the chassis, and a phone jack is provided on the receiver panel.


    1.5 microvolts from 2 to 30 mc (with 300-ohm dummy antenna and 10 db signal/noise ratio.)
