My friend bought it... so it will probably end up on my bench. Can anyone ID the model number so I can reference it in my Rider volumes?

I'd also be curious if anyone knows how the Meissner coil set compares to the Millen TRF styles?

Pete

Pete, It's a 10-1152 High Fidelity PA tuner.

Schematic on page 132 of this Meissner manual.

I'd expect top notch performance from this one, but with the caveat that it's engineered for best fidelity, not necessarily for best selectivity.

Great. That information will cover my needs. I am kind of interested in playing with one. I use my Hickok Traceometer as a TRF
receiver when I am bored. I've been impressed by the apparent openness and clarity of AM TRF receivers. There is something
there that is missing in a superhet. Even with my high frequency hearing loss.
