[Hallicrafters] SX-36A, RBK esoterica

I just scanned the Navy RBK differences chart from the NAVSHIPS 91616 manual
(Navy Radio Receiving Equipment
Navy Model RBK-16  March1952).  Here is the link:


It lists only the RBK 14 and 16 as having the panadaptor plug.  The RBK 14
has the 6 terminal antenna connection.  An RBK-15 isn't even listed.  Do
they exist?
