The version without speaker was used by the MfS and the VoPo; that is why "secret " is printed on the handbook. The radio had the assumed name "Faun" and was to be replaced in 1989 by the PR 36, "Oberon".
"FAUN" has three channels in the 160 MHZ band, is expoerted exclusively to the DDR and used by teh STASI
(PR-36) "OBERON" has 5 channels, in CZ used by secret police at 80MHz band ONLY . It has a voice scrambler (simple inversion), permanently turned on
