Cubic Corporation had a presence
in the Amateur Radio market for a few years in the late 1970ís and early
1980ís. To the best of my knowledge, only four models were ever produced
under the Cubic name. Itís very likely the 100MX was under development
when Cubic purchased Swan Electronics.
While each model has a unique feature
set, they share the following attributes:
Single conversion hetrodyne type transmitter/receiver
sections with LO premixing.
IF frequency of 9 MHz.
High quality 8 pole crystal IF filter
suitable for SSB.
Excellent receiver performance in the
presence of strong in-band signals. If you hear it, itís really there!
Highly effective noise blanker.
Audio derived AGC. Okay, so nothingís
perfect. In defense of these boxes, Cubicís implementation is actually
better than many highly regarded units from Miamisburg and Cedar Rapids
which employ theoretically superior RF derived AGC.
Transmitter output of 100 watts PEP
on all bands.

Cubicís service documentation was
second to none. So if you need an ownerís or service manual for your
transceiver, contact Brock Publications. In many cases, you will
receive NOS literature. Otherwise, the fine folks at Brock will ship a
high quality copy to you.
