FS: SSB Product Detector for Collins 75A2/3. Universal Services Company of
Columbus Ohio, the main Collins dealer at the time


offered a Product Detector that plugged directly into the NBFM socket of the

75A-2 and 75A-3 receivers.


It has a copper plated chassis and the passband control went through a hole
that was drilled in the front panel by removing the Collins winged emblem.


This one does not come with the linkage to bring control forward to the
front panel. I used it on my 75A-3 by changing the passband from Lower
Sideband to Upper Sideband by opening the top lid and manually changing the
position of the detector. The Model # is A2-3. It comes with a copy of the
manual. It works good but is not real pretty. There is tarnishing on the
copper chassis. Pictures are available. Price is $175 shipped in CONUS.

Thanks, Charlie Hugg, K5MBX, CCA# 96-003-007
