The VHF radio SE-056 was used onboard the Swiss Air Force aircraft Hawker Hunter Mk 6.
After 1958, some 160 airplanes of this type have been in service, most of them
were single-seaters (Mk 58), some double seaters (Mk 68) were used as trainer aircrafts.
In all Hawker "Hunter" aircrafts of the Swiss Air Force, new VHF and UHF radios have been installed in 1983, the SE-056 UHF radio comes with digital display of the frequency and channel number.
The transceiver has a keypad to enter two or three digit channel numbers
or the operation frequency directly, the ENter key is used to set the radio
to the new frequency. The output power can be set to high (aorund 30 Watts) or
low 8 +/- 3 Watts).
There is a control box for the intercom from which, the VHF radio SE-011 (marked by a red dot) or the very similar UHF radio SE-056 (marked by a green dot) can be selected.
I would be very thankful for further information and images.
