ALERT (TYPE 119A/B) Receiver
Type: TRF receiver;
Frequency control: fixed tuned to 500 KHz.
Power: Powered by 24 VDC from ships batteries.
Comment: Not capable of CW reception only MCW.  Because it had no BFO,  it would shut down upon the receipt of a CW transmission. Most were of the Mk 1 variety and  only tuned 500 KHz.  The final version was modified to be tuneable and cover much of the HF band as well.

Also known under designator NS101.
