The Collins 51J-4 receiver is designed for communication applications where stability and dial accuracy of the highest order are the prime requisites. Under normal operating conditions, the receiver operates in the range of 540 kc to 30.5 mc with a total setting error and drift of less than 1 kc at any frequency within its range. The receiver is designed for amplitude- modulated (AM) and continuous wave (CW) reception, although its accuracy and stability make it suitable for many applications where it is desired to receive or set definite frequencies without searching or making frequent adjustments.
