Re: [T3] Blaupunkt extra?

Bandspread was pretty normal for the times, but not on the cheapest equipment.
You used the normal radio tuner - just selected bandspread on something -
probably had BFO too for morse code and as a tuning aid.

Yes - I think there was also a 15m band - gave a nice response on my ex-navy
CR100 - and 'top band' was 160m.

Ah, I wonder how the daffodil-like bulb called a  'narcissus' is spelt in USA?
That's where it all started - poor old Narcissus who fell in love with his
reflection and died through lack of food/water.  Certainly not a 'sassy' lad.
