The HE-30 was a popular and decent performing receiver introduced in 1961. Transformer operated and single conversion, it is similar to the Trio (Kenwood) 9R-59. The bandspread is marked for 80 to 10 meter ham bands. A similar kit version was sold by Lafayette as model KT-320. AC power is switchable between 117 volts and 100 volts. Nine tubes including rectifier. Has one RF amplifier stage and two IF stages. A review can be found in QST magazine, November 1961.
