This Collins 75A-4 Receiver is good condition with the Rare 136C-1 Optional Noise Blanker installed!
It also has the optional; 4:1 reduction drive tuning control, and comes with the 3.1 SSB Filter.
(I do have the other optional filters available on my web site.)
Jim's Notes indicate that this receiver is in good working order with excellent audio. He also note that the freqncy dial is off (about 50 KHz high) so it will need some minor attention. The 5Y3GT has been replaced with a plug in Solid State device.
There is also a ding right on the bottom rear corner which is not too noticeable from any angle. You can see it in the picture of the rear panel. I confirmed the operation on my test bench and it receives very well on all bands with no apparent problems. I did notice that the S-meter sensitivity pot was a bit dirty making adjustment a little tricky but it seems to be adjusted okay now.
There several small marks which have been touched up and it has a few rub marks on the top of the cabinet.
I did not test all the tubes and as with most vintage receivers it may benefit from an alignment but appears to be working fine as it is. I did not test it any farther than to check to make sure each band received signals and the controls worked as they should.
I am selling this Vintage Collins Receiver as is, as described.
Also included is a commercial Reproduction of the manual with all of the service and alignment information.
