    The Bush Teleflic is mechanical logging device with a rotary optical readout, letters and numbers with a full sweep of the numbers for each letter. It is driven from the tuning mechanism. It was intended to make it easier to retune to specific stations on shortwave. It has no electronics other than back light and it is not a "bandspread" mechanism nor any effect on selectivity. It is on at least the SW45, BA53, BA53 Export, EBS4, BA63 and PB53 models.
