Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Nick Booras, who shares the following video and notes:
As a SW listener and radio collector I have enjoyed many hours perusing your blog and reviews. I recently started posting YouTube videos of some of my collection and thought you and your viewers might find them interesting. Please take a look at my youtube channel – dieselten01
My most recent vid included some pretty cool older surveillance type receivers.
The Watkins-Johnson HF-1000 (and NSA version, WJ-8711) are mentioned in this article
On January 11, 2012 the National Security Agency (NSA) released a pre-1995 article entitled “Receiver Dynamics” from its classified internal magazine, Cryptologic Quarterly. It contains an excellent, well-written explanation of the specifications of shortwave receivers used by some of NSA’s K4 divisions.
