The AR7 receiver was created around WWII by Howard Love, based on the US HRO receiver design. It covers from below broadcast thru to shortwave bands. There is a gap in receiving around 455kHz, the IF frequency of this set.

It uses five coil box assemblies, marked A, B, C, D, E, which can be plugged into the front. Each assembly contains four coil boxes for the RF, converter and oscillator stages.

It is a single change superheterodyne receiver with two RF stages and two IF stages.

The complete setup comprises three units; receiver, loudspeaker and power supply. The three are mounted in a standard 19 inch rack.

The AR7 can be run from 240V mains or 6V vibrator supply.
