  • Electrical bandspread with 0-100 scale
  • Automatic noise limiter
  • Four Bands covering .54 to 30 Mhz
  • Headphone terminals
  • Standby switch
  • Variable BFO for CW reception (later models omitted the variable BFO, reducing the tube count to five.)

To keep the receiver price low, all S-38s were transformerless designs.  This type of design works well, but presents dangerous shock hazards.  The safest way to operate an S-38 is to use an isolation transformer in the AC supply to the radio.   The set can be operated safely without an isolation transformer, but ONLY if the original back cover, bottom cover and rubber chassis isolators are in good condition.
