It's a considerable step up from the S-38: 1 tuned RF stage ahead of the 
mixer, 2 IF stages, and AC (xfmr) power supply. Pretty much an update on 
the S-20R (same circuit, different cosmetics). More usable than an S-38, 
but more of a SWL receiver than a serious communications device.


P.S. Made my first three CW QSOs as a Johnny Novice on 80M using an 
S-20R. I got to hear the whole novice band, all at once!
