The IF of this set is around 100kHz which allows ample opportunity for stations to appear at more than one point on the tuning scale, also the use of separate tuning capacitors for RF and Oscillator makes this set a "two hand" tuning job. The combination of this and the low IF frequency effect almost turns tuning into an art form.Volume control is by varying the voltage on the screening grids of the first and third Screen Grid valves and is quite touchy.
