This particular National HRO 5T was very shabby and had been extensively butchered. There were unnecessary modifications and extra holes drilled in the front panel. Those familiar with these receivers, will notice an additional switch and socket. These have been used to fill two holes. However, as a youngster I thought it was great. It was used like this for about ten years and was entirely reliable despite its former surgery. It was used as the main station receiver when I was first licenced in 1977. Around that time I bought a second HRO, this time an MX which I also still have. It was then that I realised my trusty old receiver was in need of some tender loving care. I obtained some parts and turned the old set upside down on the kitchen table.
