We can all thank Jerry Kopack for creation of this "Vintage CB Collectors Guide", the guide covers years 1959-70. Priority has been given to tube type radios with only the very early solid state units listed. Updates will be added upon receipt. The Acc. notes correlate to footnotes at the bottom of the page. Prices shown were the manufactures list at that time. The guide has been split into three separate pages due to it's size. Links to the other two pages are provided at the bottom of each page.

 Footnotes:

1: Receiver has adjustable squelch circuitry with panel control.

2: Receiver has noise limiting circuitry.

3: Transceiver circuitry is completely transistorized.

4: Receiver has mechanical or crystal filter circuitry to provide improved selectivity and rejection of adjacent channel interference.

5: Transceiver is sold with a built-in selective calling system.

6: Transceiver has input jack or socket for use with external power supply

7: Receiver circuitry includes "spotting" switch to cue receiver to transmit crystal-controlled channel.

8: Transmitter has crystal socket on panel to permit optional channel exclusive of internal crystal switching.

9: Receiver includes bandswitch to permit reception of AM standard broadcast-band signals.

10: Transceiver has rear skirt socket provision to connect a selective calling system without additional wiring changes.

11: Transceiver uses special frequency synthesis to receive and transmit on all 23 channels.

12: Receiver has vernier tuning (generally about plus or minus 3 kc) in addition to frequency-synthesis circuitry.

13: Transmitter modulator includes speech compression or special filtering for enhanced "talk power".

14: Transceiver is constructed in modules for easy servicing.

15: Transmitter modulator has switching provisions to enable it to be used as a public address system.

16: Receiver includes special noise eliminating circuitry referred to as "TNS".

17: Transmitter has metering jacks to permit tuning the transmitter final amplifier.

18: Transceiver has master switch with key lock to protect illegal use of equipment.
