  • The desk top transceiver BC-312-N has a Dynamotor DM-21. It was designed at Signal Corps Laboratories Fort Monmouth, New Jersey and at least made by Farnsworth Television & Radio Corporation, Indiana. Frequency range is 1.5 - 18 MHz AM / CW.

BC-312-HX and BC-312-NX work with 24 - 28 V DC with Dynamotor DM-21CX, the others with 12 to 14 volts. - with Dynamotor DM-21. Each of those models have slight differences like Quarz-Filter, Noise balancing system, tube 12A6 instead of 6F6 etc. They were mainly used for airbore and army purposes, later often found in HAM radio stations. There was also a confirmed production run in France after WW2. See also the "General page for BC-312".
