The RBS is rather insensitive and with a 1255 kc IF its as broad as a barn door. It also requires the separate PS/audio output box which is often missing.

Not on my list of "got to have" unless you are a WW2 collector.

Is that the same as the RBM-4 Westinghouse?  I used one in the early 1960s for VHF tunable IF with Ameco converters. As I recall, I used the BCB band ARC-5 receiver on the IF for more selectivity--that was a popular "mod" back in those days.

Similar with a single 12A6 audio instead of PP 6V6's
