Collins 75A-4 Receiver

One of the first, probably THE first, commercial Ham Band SSB receivers was the Collins 75A-4. Nearly 50 years after its introduction, it is considered by many to still be the finest SSB receiver ever made, even by todays standards. Not only did it provide true SSB capability, but it retained the famous CW and AM characteristics of the previous Collins receivers like the 75A-3.

This receiver is my main BA operating receiver, usually used in conjunction with my Invader 2000. This 75A-4 contains filters for 500c/CW, 3.1kc/SSB and 6kc/AM.
