Philips HMZL34/III OKM similar to the Dutch Vliegtuig Ontvanger 34
The Dutch receiver intended to be used in aircrafts seems later to have been used mainly by Kriegsmarine

The easiest way to distinguish between
VO34 and HMZL34 is to check which BFO valve
is used. The original VO34 has EH2, while the German version has EBC3, either receiver have
EBC3 as Local oscillator, but here is a chance for an easy conversion to SSB product detector.
It seems the reason for this change is to avoid using a dry diode for some bias voltage.
