Notes The 3 band VHF Transistor Portable "Gauer's VHF" for Longwave 200 - 400 KHz (kc), Broadcast 550 - 1600 KHz and VHF in AM was made in two versions as model 6220 and 6221. We know that there is a difference in the VHF air band: either 118 to 136 MHz (mc) or 108 to 136 MHz for the other model. We don't know yet which model number represents which band. The set was also distributed in the USA by Scot Air Inc., Illinois (according to an add in 1963). We don't know the manufacturer. In Switzerland it was sold by Gauer Electronic Zürich but surely not manufactured.
