All power necessary for mobile operation is furnished by the Heathkit HP-10 mobile power supply. Simple conversion to fixed station operation is easily accomplished by using the Heathkit HP-20 AC power supply. Styling of both the "Comanche" and "Cheyenne" features a one-piece die-cast front panel with raised meter, tuning dial and control panel escutcheons, and die-cast knobs. Color styled in two-tone gray and gray-green.
