Around 1966 the Racal two-way radio in our private hire car cost £2,000 per year, or twice the sale price of the Ford Corsair it was fitted to! From memory it was made from sky-blue plastic and had just two controls on the front volume and "squelch". "Squelch" was used to dampen the loud bursts of static between messages but setting it was a matter of trial and error.
