has been modified to use Motorola type low-impedance microphone
(microphone included).  Modification not done by me but do have the
data.  Can be returned to high impedance microphone with a minimum of

Collins 708A-1 Master Oscillator.  This is a "precision" (as the manual
says!) oscillator that covers 2.0 to 4.2 MHz.  It mounted in a 10.5 in
high, standard 19 inch rack.  Has two PTO(s), and over 20 tubes.  The
manual says that it can be reset to within 30 cps (Hz) from the dial.

CTCSS ("PL", "Channel Guard", "Quiet Channel", etc.), and DPL.  Can have
different CTCSS tone, DPL, etc., on transmit and receive (same

on 440 MHz FM myself.
