Receivers in the EC10A2 Series are primarily intended for use on small sea-going vessels but are equally suited to many other applications in the maritime field. Full coverage of the HF band from 1.5 to 30 MHz is available, together with the 300-550 kHz Marine Band. Instant selection of the International Distress and Calling Channel (2182 kHz) is provided by a built-in crystal controlled converter unit.

Three version of the EC10A2 receiver exist, one for bench-monitoring and two for installation in standard 19-in racking. Type designations are as follows:

EC10A2/1: Standard bench-monitoring with integral cabinet loudspeaker.
EC10A2/2: Standard rack-mounting version with single panel-mounted loudspeaker.
EC10A2/3: Special rack-mounting version with two panel-mounted loudspeakers, one of which is available for use with ship intercom systems.
