Default Re: MF/HF Receiver type R/75/WRDV/3550

CV4055 is the trusty EL821/6CH6, a small power pentode used by the barrow-load in video-distribution and similar applications, broadly comparable to the ee-el eightyfour. (Don't take that too literally, different pin-out and bias requirement). CV4058 is the good ol' EC90/6C4 triode, CV4015 the EF92 vari-mu signal pentode. One of the appealing things about this neat little radio is the commonality of the valve types, perhaps with the exception of the CV395, a bit like a B8B version of the IO VR150 with ignition electrode.
