RCA SRR-13A communications receiver has 29 tubes. It covers 2-32 MHz. It was made for the Navy in the early 1950s and 1960s. This receiver is a later version with solid state diodes, an AGC on/off switch and other improvements. These units received a lot of service on U.S. Navy ships. They were replaced by the Collins R-390A. There is an excellent article in the July 1991 edition of the Electric Radio by Walt Hutchens. He stated that the SRR-13 is near the "high point" of the tunable oscillator super heterodyne receivers, and that "the set's mechanical design and mechanical and electrical construction is the most refined I have ever seen." He also mentions the limitations of the receiver. Supplementary photos
