|Receiver 1475 Type R1475 RG.44.
Communication RG44 AP2883G
This receiver with its
associated power supply unit was a piece of equipment of exceptionally
high performance in sensitivity, selectivity and frequency stability.
incorporated the then most recent advances in electrical and mechanical
design techniques, it was suitable for operation from either AC mains or
The receiver used a super-heterodyne circuit with twelve valves
and a visual tuning indicator which , in conjunction with the new type of
greatly extended tuning scale, permitted accurate tuning to within an
audible beat note of any given frequency in the band of 2 to 20 Mc/s.
In appearance this equipment departed
from the conventional lines, since the special tuning unit and scale
occupied a considerable portion of the front panel.
were effected by means of two large knurled thumb controls, placed for
convenience in operating at one end of the tuning drum, at the other end
is the wave-change lever, all other controls were arranged in two rows
High-discrimination, direct-reading tuning scale
took the form of a drum on which the entire tuning scale is printed in
spiral form so that the developed length of the scale was nearly 30 feet.
It was graduated at 10kc/s intervals throughout the entire band, the scale
separation between marks being 3/16" up to 11.3 Mc/s and more than
1/8" up to 20 Mc/s.
As the drum was rotated by means of
the knurled thumb wheel, moving pointers indicate on which spiral the
frequency required was to be read. A static horizontal scale associated
with the pointers indicated the frequency in whole numbers of Mc/s.
Frequency-calibration check points were clearly marked at 600 kc/s
intervals on the drum.
Frequency Calibration-scale checking
Facilities were provided in the receiver for checking the accuracy of the
scale calibration to very fine limits and for correcting the calibration
The harmonics of the crystal controlled 2nd heterodyne
oscillator were fed back to the anode circuit of the RF amplifier valve,
which was itself switched off so that all other carriers which might cause
confusion are excluded from the mixer and subsequent stages.

By this means whistles were produced
at 600 kc/s intervals throughout the tuning range and the positions at
which they should be heard were marked on the rotating scale.
the carrier whistles do not correspond to the scale check points, they can
be made to do so by means of the "Scale Trimmer" control. This
control was in effect an inductance trimmer, by means of which a constant
percentage control of the1st heterodyne oscillator was obtained. In this
way changes due to drift can be corrected through -out the whole of the
bands and constant re-checking was therefore un-necessary.
to the precision tuning-adjustment facility a further innovation was
introduced in this receiver in the form of a device which enables
reception on a fixed frequency between 2 to 7.5 Mc/s,(150 to 40m), (e.g.
Guard Frequency) to be carried on
simultaneously with the reception of signals on any other frequency (or on
the same frequency).
Thus on one receiver a double watch could be kept.
This dual channel effect was obtained by the use of a second mixer valve
which performed the combined functions of an auxiliary mixer and auxiliary
The oscillator was controlled by a standard plug-in crystal,
and the HF circuit associated with this channel takes the form of a unit
which is plugged into the front of the set.

When the guard- frequency valve was
switched on, a signal on that frequency breaks through, irrespective of
the frequency to which the main tuning controls were set.
