Man, youze guyz are on the ball today.
For years i was thinkin' ADF radio head, but ADF would go down to around 100-200 khz.

Heh, yeah, we were "indoctrinated" with the company history.
I've actually seen photos of those radios before.
Indeed, it was the product that got Motorola off the ground.
But it was their portable radios that helped win the war!
Pity the company barely exists any more.
Especially when I can read it..
