Try it.
If you have a long antenna and close high-power stations, just about
any diode will work. But if the conditions are marginal, not much
will beat the 1N34A.

The NTE110MP is a matched pair of germanium diodes in a single case.
It should work fine. You might compare it to a 1N34A and let us
know if you can hear a difference. It looks like the idea is to
get better performance by having two identical diodes in parallel.
