I have the feeling that the pin diodes in question are a modification 
suggested in an article by Ulrich Rhode (not sure of the spelling of his 
name) a few years back concerning 2nd order IMD in modern rigs. One of 
the rigs mentioned was the Paragon.  The article stated that by replacing 
the common switching diodes used to switch the receiver front end band 
pass filters with a certain type of pin diode, 2nd order IMD could be 
improved. Maybe some of our more technically oriented folks remember this 
article and can comment in greater detail. This is all I remember so if 
you have additional questions don't ask me!
