Teletron TE-704
Short-wave receiver - this page is a stub

TE-704 was a professional solid-state short-wave double-conversion communications receiver, developed around 1976 by Heinrich Pfitzner GmbH in Bergen Enkheim (near Frankfurt am Main, Germany) and marketed under the brandname Teletron [4]. It is suitable for the reception of radio signals in the 10-600 kHz range and from 1.5 to 30 MHz, with a resolution of 10 Hz, in A1A, A3E, F1B, F1C and F3C. It has a 1st IF frequency of 75 MHz and a 2nd IF of 30 kHz [1]. 1

The TE-704 can not be tuned continuously with a rotary dial. Instead, the desired frequency has to be entered on the front panel, by means of 7 lever-operated thumbwheels. The receiver was succeeded by the more advanced TE-712, which was developed a year later, in 1977.

  1. At the time, these were common IF frequencies in professional receivers from Pfitzner and Telefunken.
