Bill, are you sure your thinking of the 100V?  The CE 100V can transmit on LSB,
USB, DSB, LSC (Lower sideband with carrier), USC, AM, PM, CW and FSK all
selectable on the front panel on any band.  I do remember that the Swan 350
was on of those rigs that had the USB on 20-15-10 and LSB on 40-80, but not
the ultimate Central Electronics 100V!
