NOTES A neatly constructed piece of kit from a firm I've not heard of before by the name of Channel Electronic Industries. Their premises were in Burnham-On-Sea which is by the side of the Bristol channel so presumably thats how the company name evolved.

Interior label [8K]No trouble dating this bit of kit which is from the dawn of the start of Band 3 transmissions.
SERVICE DATA Nope :-(
CURRENT STATE In working condition. Some of the panel lettering is a bit faint, plus the odd scratch but after nearly 50 years its survived quite wel.
WHERE FOUND Bought privately for around £10 (as part of a job lot).
