The Canadian Marconi Receiver No 52.

Developed from the No 9 and No 9 Mk I sets and originally designated No 9 Mk II, the No 52 Set was developed for Brigade / Division communications and principally used for Division rear-link command.
As with the No 9 Sets, it could be a ground station or vehicle-mounted. The principal improvements were in frequency range. The improved frequency coverage was achieved by the use of three bands. The original No 9 Set had a single band from 1.875 to 5 MHz.
The No 52 Set has  3 bands from 1.75 to 16 MHz, making this unit far more successful than the No 9 Set it replaced.
It was used from 1944 until its replacement in the 1950s by the LarkspurC11/R210.

It employs 13 valves in a super-heterodyne circuit using 12 volt indirectly heated types.

Front  panel controls include the following : -
Separate AF and RF gain, CW filter, noise limiter, BFO tone sharp and flat selectivity, speaker on-off switch (a built-in speaker was incorporated in the set and also provision for two headsets); further controls are the CW / Phone Select, crystal calibrator switch, a multi-position meter switch and meter giving an instant valve check, HT and AVC readings.
When the 52 set is used with its companion transmitter this meter also reads RF current, transmitter PA  / grid currents.

Power for the receiver came from the companion PSU (Power Unit ZE12)

This enabled the 52 set to be worked directly from the mains, without the PSU, the receiver required 150volts DC for the HT and 12 volts for the heaters.
Connections to the receiver were made at the plug on the rear chassis.

The Frequency Coverage
1.75 to 16 Mc/s in three bands.
Band 1 : -1.75 to 4 Mc/s.
Band 2 : - 3.5 to 8 Mc/s.
Band 3 : -  7 to 16 Mc/s.

Intermediate Frequency
420 kc/s.
As with the No 19 Set, ‘flick’ frequency selection is available on transmitter and receiver.
