Comments: Although this is a solid state receiver, it is nonetheless the first of the main Marconi receivers used during the transitionary period from tubes to solid state. Apollo was basically a tube design but with
 transistors substituted for the tubes. At the end of the day,  it really wasn't that good of a receiver.
