Notes

Western Electric "American" AR 4 (BC-14) receiver.

Note the marked similarity to the earlier French Type A-1.

The A-1's calibrated wavemeter was replaced by a standard buzzer and modest calibration chart. A companion wavemeter was produced for finer calibration. The main detector was slightly Americanized, the French type of phone plug was replaced with a standard American plug and a special shorting plug was provided for use when a separate detector unit was needed.

The wireless equipment operated on wavelengths between 200 and 600 meters (approximately today’s AM broadcast band).

The AR 4 was produced by Western Electric and Liberty Electric in very limited quantities.
