It just occurred to me that someone should have pointed out
by now that we are discussing 640 Kc and 1240 Kc since
Conelrad was history before Dr. Hertz became a household

Sorry, I'll go back to the Thanksgiving leftovers now.

Umm, was it Kc, kc, Kcps?

And I think the only radio we had with the Conelrad logos had a linear
scale.  Of course, it was called a dial.  Just like a telephone dial.
Yeah, yeah, I said I'd go....
