Object of the week: transceiver radio
Today’s object is a transceiver radio. A transceiver is a device comprising of both a transmitter and a receiver which are combined and share common circuitry or a single housing. When no circuitry is common between transmit and receive functions, the device is a transmitter-receiver. The term originated in the early 1920s. This transceiver was licensed in 1975 by the donor.
