  Receiver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A receiver (radio) is an electronic device that receives a radio signal from a transmitter and converts it to useful information in the form of sound, pictures, computer data, navigational position information, etc. An external receiving antenna may be required.
A receiver (electronics) is a combination of a radio broadcast tuner and an amplifier for the speakers, as well as selection for sources such as a CD or tape, and adjustments for audio, such as a graphic equalizer or basic tone controls.
A receiver (firearms) is the part of the firearm that houses the operating parts of the gun.

 R1155 receiver
This receiver started development in 1939 by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co and was called the AD.87B/8882B to replace the pre-war T1083 and R1082.
The receiver has 10 valves of which 3 are for the D/F and one is a Tuning Indicator (magic eye).
I have had this receiver for over 20 years, as it was bought by a friend from Chris Cowan VK2PZ, and then passed on to me. When I finally started to restore it 3 years ago, I had to remove the years of dust and dirt and take stock of what was missing.

 Buying a Satellite TV Receiver   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
All satellite TV receivers are designed to maximize the strength of the incoming satellite signal or "carrier" while at the same time limiting the amount of noise either contributed by external sources or generated by the satellite TV system's internal electronic circuitry.
The lower the receiver's threshold rating, the better it will operate under low signal receiving conditions such as when the antenna's diameter is insufficient for receiving a low-powered satellite transmission.
The best way to evaluate receiver performance is to have the retailer connect it to a dish with the same diameter as the one that you intend to install at your home and actually see how it performs while receiving several different satellites.

The Crystal radio receiver was first built c1900 by Greenleaf Whittier Pickard, who used crystalline minerals to detect radio signals.
A semiconductive mineral crystal, usually lead sulfide (Galena) or cadmium sulfide was fixed inside a brass cup and the radio operator found the loudest signal by touching the wire, called a cat's whisker, to various points on the surface of the crystal.
The radio was entirely powered from the radio waves it received.

 How does a receiver work?
Each period received is added to it, then the content of the accumulator is shrinked a little bit (it is multiplicated by 0.999, say).
The most serious reason why the received signal should be as strong as possible is to make it be stronger than the internal noise produced by the electronics of the receiver.
A signal is emitted, it arrives at the receiver weakened and with a lot of noise added, yet the receiver manages to show wether there was an emitted signal or not.
