ah perry...

both the triton 1 and triton 2 had to have their receiver's front ends 
peaked... you still had to "tune the front end" on both of those 

they did not have the completely "NO TUNE" design like the SB-104. 
Although I admit, the SB-104 kinda of sucked, it had a lot of "firsts"
1. fully solid state no tune design
2. broadband transmitter
3 digital readout for frequency

that being said. I have the flame proof suit on and the deflectors are 
at full power.
