Footnotes:

1: Receiver has adjustable squelch circuitry with panel control.

2: Receiver has noise limiting circuitry.

3: Transceiver circuitry is completely transistorized.

4: Receiver has mechanical or crystal filter circuitry to provide improved selectivity and rejection of adjacent channel interference.

5: Transceiver is sold with a built-in selective calling system.

6: Transceiver has input jack or socket for use with external power supply

7: Receiver circuitry includes "spotting" switch to cue receiver to transmit crystal-controlled channel.

8: Transmitter has crystal socket on panel to permit optional channel exclusive of internal crystal switching.

9: Receiver includes bandswitch to permit reception of AM standard broadcast-band signals.

10: Transceiver has rear skirt socket provision to connect a selective calling system without additional wiring changes.

11: Transceiver uses special frequency synthesis to receive and transmit on all 23 channels.

12: Receiver has vernier tuning (generally about plus or minus 3 kc) in addition to frequency-synthesis circuitry.

13: Transmitter modulator includes speech compression or special filtering for enhanced "talk power".

14: Transceiver is constructed in modules for easy servicing.

15: Transmitter modulator has switching provisions to enable it to be used as a public address system.

16: Receiver includes special noise eliminating circuitry referred to as "TNS".

17: Transmitter has metering jacks to permit tuning the transmitter final amplifier.

18: Transceiver has master switch with key lock to protect illegal use of equipment.

19: Transceiver is sold with a special noise-canceling microphone.

20: Receiver includes "local-distant" switching circuitry for better automatic volume (a.v.c.) action.

21: Receiver has beat frequency oscillator for carrier insertion to receive SSB signals.

22: A.C. model supplied, but D.C. voltages from car batteries may be used with this transceiver via special cords or cables, and/or external power supply.

23: S-meter is available from manufacturer as optional extra, requires no internal wiring for connection.

24: D.C. model supplied, but A.C. power supply available as optional extra.

25: Receiver has adjustable selectivity controlled from front panel.

26: Transmitter metering also reads standing wave ratio.

27: Transmitter has provisions for VOX (voice-operated transmissions), eliminating the necessity for on-off switching.

28: Special frequency-synthesis circuit uses one crystal per channel for receiving and transmitting.

29: Receiver circuit includes audio tone for "spotting" transmitter crystal frequencies.

30: Additional I.F. selectivity through the use of a Q-multiplier circuit.

31: Transceiver is built into short-wave communications receiver.
