No, it looks a little like that but it is not a reflex. It is a homodyne.
It uses feed back to cause oscillation of the first stage that zero
beats the incoming RF. This makes the reciever very selective.
The signal isn't rectified until it goes to the audio stage.
The two circuits are similar. I've seen the combination of homodyne
and reflex as well. These are usually just called reflex.
Another similar method of getting selectivity is to make a
