Type:Citizen band transceiver
Frequency range
depending on version:
France:   26.965-27.405 MHz
Italy:   26.865-27.265 MHz
Sweden:   26.965-27.255 MHz
Switzerland 1:   26.965-27.225 MHz
Switzerland 2:   26.965-27.405 MHz
Channels / tuning steps
depending on version:
France:   40
Italy:   34
Sweden:   25 (1-24 + 11A) *
Switzerland 1:   22

* NB! According to swedish law at the time, SSB was only allowed on ch 24,
and therefore, switching this radio to LSB or USB automatically changed the
channel to 24.
