IF Signal Boosters

This device was designed to be used to increase the IF gain in late 40s and early 50s TV sets. One of the IF amplifier tubes was removed, and the booster was plugged in.

This booster, made by Raytheon, was designed to improve sound reception. It added a stage of 4.5 mHz amplification.
