While it may have seemed like "AR-88s were everywhere" the actual production numbers did not exceed 25,000 units (total WWII production of AR-88D, AR-88F, AR-88LF and CR-91 receivers.) The AR-88 was used for several purposes by Great Britain during WWII.
The AR-88 was used extensively in Great Britain during WWII for varied purposes.
The USSR continued to utilize the AR-88 after WWII as it had during the war, that is for military and surveillance purposes.
By the late-1950s and early-1960s, the AR-88 was showing its age and the receivers must have become available to ham club stations as it was very common to QSO Russians on 20M CW who were using an AR-88 for the station receiver. - After WWII, RCA and Radiomarine Corporation of America (a division of RCA that handled all of RCA's maritime radio business and operations) continued to use the AR-88 and its variants in their own installations for various purposes.
RCA's AR-88 planning may have chronologically followed their AR-77 ham receiver but the AR-88 owes much of its design concept as a replacement for RCA's aging commercial-military receiver, the AR-60.
The AR-60 had been introduced in 1935 and was still being built as late as 1940.
The finalized AR-88 was a 14 tube superheterodyne that covered .54 to 32MC in six tuning ranges, featuring incredible sensitivity (even up to 10 meters), excellent stability and high fidelity audio along with mechanical and electronic reliability that couldn't be found in any other receivers of the day. Fowler while George Blaker handled the mechanical design.
The actual production during WWII was handled by RCA's Export Sales under Charles Roberts in Camden, New Jersey.By the end of WWII, it certainly seemed like tens of thousands of AR-88 receivers had been shipped overseas to our allies.However, careful examination of serial numbers indicate a production level that was far less than the customary published estimates.This was due to the provisions in the Lend-Lease Act which stated that materiel had to be either returned or destroyed.In just one incident, a load of AR-88 receivers was "dumped" into an abandoned well by USA forces after the war ended.Additional receivers were produced at RCA facilities in Bloomington, Indiana and Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
