The Milspec 1030 followed the Signal/One CX-7 and Signal/One CX-11 top-of-the-line transceivers made by Signal/One. The "introductory" price of the radio shown above was USD 5740.00. As its name and pricetag suggest, the Milspec 1030 was manufactured to unusually high quality standards.

Introduced in 1981, The Milspec 1030 was an effort to upstage the popular Collins KWM-380 transceiver with a second-generation synthesizer design.

The Milspec 1030's front panel clearly resembles that of the KWM-380, with front-mounted speaker, meter, button, knob and display layouts closely mimicing the Collins styling. The large black power toggle switch is identical to that used in the Collins.
