Collins R-388 is a 30 band receiver that covers 540 khz to 30.500 mhz. The receiver will readout out to 1 khz for extremely good frequency accuracy. The band width ranges from .2khz to 6 khz in 5 steps. The unit is extremly stable. It is designed to receive AM/CW/MCW, you can receive SSB with turning the gain control down. The receiver is the military equivalent to the Collins 51J3 commerical receiver except it is built to military specifications.

R-390A receiver operates from 0.5 MHz through 32 MHz and is continuously tunable in 32 bands. It has six IF bandwidths designed to accommodate CW, AM and RTTY signals. The R-390A was designed by Collins and built by Collins and many others. It is certainly one of the most well designed receivers ever built.

R-391 receiver tunes from .55 - 32 Mhz, in 32 1Mhz bands; Pre-settable frequencies locally or remotely chosen and tuned by a complex set of gears, cams, and clutches driven by a 28VDC motor. "Repeatability" - the radio's ability to return to a pre-set frequency - is within 300 cycles (usually better). The radio uses double conversion for the lower 8 bands; and triple conversion for the upper 24 bands. The R-391 uses variable passband tuned IF which allows selectivity (the ability to tune stations apart) to be varied from wide for good fidelity - to very narrow -allowing maximum separation of stations. R-391 can also be operated from 28VDC by replacing the AC power supply module with the appropriate Dynamotor module.
