A small number of all wave receivers Teletron - Pfitzner TE 704 C with the possibility to connect to a radioteletype adaptor TG 44 E has been acquired by the signals intelligence for tests with radioteletype communications.
The professional allwave receiver Pfitzner - Teletron TE 704 C is specially designed for radioteletype and faksimile reception. It comes in a very compact 8,5" (half 19") rack unit in a steel desktop cabinet, the receiver itself has a size of 220 x 138 x 395 mm and a weight of 11 kg.
In the middle of the front panel, between the analog signal strength meter and the meter for radioteletype reception mark and space signals, you find the frequency switch arrangement. The Teletron te 704 is controlled by an array of seven mechanic switches to control the reception frequency. In contrast to the first appearence from far, there are no BCD switches but a similar switch type, when the switch handle is moved from the upmost to downmost position, the number indicated will change from 9 to 0.
The Swiss Army used the Teletron Pfitzner TE 704 C only in small numbers for trials with radioteletype operation.
