Notes

Civilian Version of model HRO-5 (HRO Variant 5), with coils with bandspread for amateur radio bands delivered (in contrast to original HRO-5 with comes without bandspread coils).

Coverage 50 kHz - 30 MHz (9 ganged coil sets 50-100 / 100-200 / 180-430 / 480-960 / 900-2050 kHz / 1,7-4 / 3,5-7,3 / 7-14,4 / 14-30 MHz, shortwave coils delivered with bandspread in HAM bands).

Modes AM / CW/SSB (BFO).

The 0 – 500 epicyclic readout dial allows for continuous analog tuning while digitally indicating incremental progress over a range of ten full turns of the large tuning knob that tunes with velvet smoothness. Ten times the circumference of the dial is nearly 4 meters on a normal dial scale, which delivers great frequency resolution. The dial is not calibrated to directly indicate a frequency but a frequency calibration chart is necessary to determine the correct operation frequency.

HRO model Var. 5 , knobs with metal skirts (selectivity control in right upper corner also with metal skirt), black laquered micrometer dial and round S-meter.

External "dog house" type power supply : PSU 697 (filaments 6.3 V AC, B+ 240 V DC) used as standard.
