Description of the R408 incorrect on the web site. Seem to remember the HRO had plug in transistors.

The HRO had plug-in coil packs instead of a band change switch.

Yes, that was the WW2 tubed model. Seem to recollect that the solid state models in the 70s had transistors mounted in sockets.

I guess you're referring to the HRO-500 which did indeed have some plug-in transistors.
