The report discusses a one year effort concerned with providing the Zenith ZX-5 and other HF band receivers with a Single SidebandSSB reception capability. Contained is information concerning design, development, evaluation and construction of thirty 30 model E-130, Calibration - SSB Adaptors provided for this purpose. All associated electrical and mechanical drawings and a complete E-130 Operating and Maintenance Manual are also included. In the SSB mode the E-130 adaptor produces a carrier 1.6 - 25 MHz that can be injected into the receivers antenna terminal along with the sideband signal thus providing a means of demodulating SSB signals. Also provided in the small 48 cubic inches battery operated adaptor is a 500 KkHz crystal oscillator and harmonic generator providing crystal harmonics for receiver dial calibration from 1 to 25 MHz. Both adaptor functions can be utilized without receiver modification. Author
