Gino, I have the 770R Mk11.
Only goes down to 19 Mhz so not a lot of use for HF listening.

These grand old dames of the airwaves are the raison d'etre radio ops in Brit army service were/are called "scaleys", you know, because of the band scales on the radio.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.
