My HT4-B was made in 1938, and uses the same TU's (and crystals) that the 
BC-610 uses.

While we are on off-beat questions regarding the HT4/BC-610. I have one:

The HT4-B has a four-prong "banana" socket at the very back and left of the 
RF section.  By examining the wiring, it's obviously there to plug a 
padder-cap into for LF operation.

Does the BC-610 have this socket, as well?

And, has anyone ever seen, or own, one of these padder-caps?
