Overview

Radio Receiver R-96/SR is intended for use in harbor and sea-going vessels where extreme conditions such as tropical climates and salt sea atmosphere may be prevalent, and where severe vibrations and shock may be encountered. It is designed for operation alone or in combination with a radio transmitter.


The receiver is provided with four crystal controlled channels for operation in a frequency range of 1,700 to 8,700 kc (kilocycles) and a fifth position for manual tuning over the frequency ranges of 135- 260 kc, 255-510 kc, 1,485-3,030 kc, 2,970-6,060 kc, and 5,940-12,120 kc.


CW (continuous-wave), MCW (modulated-continuous-wave), ICW (interrupted-continuous-wave), and voice-modulated signals (phone) may be received with either automatic or manual volume control.
