Name: Swan Electronics, Oceanside, CA    (USA)  
Abbreviation: swan

305 Airport Road, Oceanside, CA 92054. Now a subsidiary of Cubic Corporation. Manufacturer of amateur tranceivers and related items. Swan made only one receiver, the 600-R. It was designed to match the 600-T HAM bands transmitter.

Founded: 1960

Founded by Herb Johnson, W7GRA/W8KQI, in Benson, Arizona as first called "Swan Engeneering". First product was the cheap SSB transceiver SW-120. 1962, production was still greving, Swan moved to Oceanside, California. Later the company sold to Cubic Corporation, a San Diego based conglomerate that mainly sold sophisticated communications equipment to the US government and military agencies around the globe. In the late 1970ies Swan came into difficulties because the far east competitors in the HAM market play a bigger role and buisness still going down. A reanimation in the 1990ies was not successful. 

This manufacturer was suggested by Eilert Menke.
