R388 Collins Receiver R-388
This R-388/51J-3 receiver is a recent addition, but after an alignment and minor cleanup, has become a favorite in the shack. While the R-390 is the more modernized (some say superior) receiver, I find more enjoyment from operating the R-388 than the R-390A. The only thing better would be to get the 51J-4 version that adds the mechanical filters. This is another receiver made by Collins.
