Excuse me?  :-)  I can assure you that the ARR-7 (repackaged SX-28) and
its S-27/S-36 equivalent, the ARR-5, were Raven receivers, Ed.  These
two were used with the third of the triumvirate, the APR-4, to feed an
AN/APA-10 panoramic adapter and either an AN/APA-6 or AN/APA-11 pulse
analyzer for signal detection, analysis, and characterization.  As a
matter of fact, recently I've been wading through mountains of old
documents and crawling around on hands and knees looking for mounting
holes, trying to determine what was on board the Enola Gay on August
6th, 1945.  It appears that all of the above (with an APA-11 vice APA-6)
were chosen by Jacob Beser from anything he wanted for that mission.
BTW, we still need an original APA-11 for the suite in Enola (not the
later -A model).  Would appreciate any leads.
