 I googled s-38b with noise limiter and got a lot of stuff.
Here is a page...http://www.ohio.edu/people/postr/bapix/S38.htm.
I started with an S-38D in 1956.

I'm pretty familiar with Hallicrafters S-38s from the original through the "C" model and am aware of a few variants of the original a la Dachis' book. However, before now, I'd never heard of (much less seen) a "B" model with and ANL switch. I now own one. From what I've always believed, the ANL circuitry was only in the original version. Does anyone have any information on this and/or any other variants? 

Thanks and 73 to all,
