Well it sort of was ..... let's not forget the numerous OPs who used two
recievers and one xmtr on their Collins "S" lines, and Drake "C" lines
A homemade switchbox delegated the xmtr transcieve signal to either the
left -or- right hand reciever. This, combined with the xmtrs VFO gave
the well equipped BIG GUN an effective THREE FREQUENCY MEMORY !!!!!
Something considerd a huge advantage in the 70s !!! And alll the big
guns had it!
It wasn't xactly two radio operation .... lets call it one -and- one
half radioes ...
