This Lafayette HE-10 general coverage Communications Receiver & HE-48 Speaker, is in Collectors Quality Condition. This is a very desirable Communications receiver and is built very well. They were made from 1959 to 1963, and were built by Kenwood Trio.The set was sold in Europe as the Jennen 9R-4JThe Lafayette KT-200 was the kit-built version of the HE-10 receiver. NOTE: This consignment item is being sold for the family of a Silent Key and is being sold as is as described.This one is super clean inside and out. I did plug this radio in and it appears to be receiving very well on all bands.As with most vintage receivers, it may benefit with an alignment and it is always a good idea to change the electrolytic capacitors, but it is working fine as it is. The Lafayette KT-200 was a kit-built receiver introduced in 1959. It is identical to the factory built version sold by Lafayette as model HE-10. Made by Trio (Kenwood) of Japan, the set was also sold as the Trio 9R-4J. The set was sold in Europe as the Jennen 9R-4J. Some of the Trio variations use a 5CG4 rectifier and 6AQ5 audio output in place of the 5Y3 and 6AR5. Compare also the variation in the mounting of the S-meter. Frequency coverage is 550KHz to 31 Mhz in four bands. It is transformer operated and single conversion with an IF of 455 KHz. The bandspread is marked from 0 to 100. The main tuning dial has the international short wave bands highlighted but not the ham bands. The set has 9 tubes including a 6DB6 as RF amp, 6BE6 oscillator, 6BE6 mixer, two 6BD6 IF amplifiers, 6AV6 for BFO and ANL, 6AV6 for detector/ first audio, 6AR5 for audio output, and 5Y3GT rectifier. An octal socket is located on the rear panel for attaching a Q-multiplier. A review of the HE-10 can be found in the May 1961 issues of '73 Magazine. I am very proficient packing this type of heavy vintage radio gear. The unit will be double boxed and professionally packed to a degree you can not get from normal packing facilities.
