Yesterday I picked up an R-270/FRR; similiar to the BC-794 Super Pro. This
unit was made byWickes Engineering & Construction Co. Never heard of them,
has anyone else?
The other "oddity" is a crystal control ocsilator on top of the tuning
capacitor unit. This has position for 3 crystals (FT-171). On the front
panel is a black plate with OFF, 1, 2, 3 positions and a "trimmer" to zero
the crystal. Anyone have any information on that?
The set is very dusty, but I got the power supply and cables with it.
Unfortunately the BAMA site does not have a manual for either the R-270 or
the BC-794. I have a manual for the BC-779 and will have to see what
differences there are besides the frequency range.
