I know nothing about this equipment so please don't ask!

The Standard Communications radio division was purchased by Yaesu-Vertex.
This page is for all the equipment branded as "Standard Radio" (before the Yaesu-Vertex buyout), including the Standard units sold by Heathkit. All the products that are branded "Vertex" or "Vertex / Standard" (i.e. post buyout) will be found on the Yaesu-Vertex-Standard page.

A bit of trivia - when Standard was still in operation as a stand-alone company they made their own crystals. When they were bought out, the crystal division was spun off into its own company, now operating as Frequency Management.

C5608D Dual-band mobile radio owner's manual   4.1 MB PDF   includes schematics
The C5608D is a 50 watt fully synthesized dual-band radio. It's basically two independent radios with one common control panel and a microphone that duplicates 99% of the functionality. The radio can do full bi-directional cross-band repeat but this can only be activated at the control panel. It requires an external VHF/UHF splitter/combiner as it has separate UHF antenna connectors for each band. It does full CTCSS encode and decode but does NOT have DCS.

RP70U UHF Repeater Service Manual   1.6 MB PDF
The RP-70 is a 12 watt crystal controlled desktop repeater with an optional internal notch-only duplexer. While Standard had their own tone board (the dip-switch programmable TN-34 encode/decode board), many were purchased as carrier-only and fitted with various aftermarket tone boards (i.e. Com-Spec TS-32) or community repeat panels (Com-Spec TP-3200, TP-38, Zetron, etc).
If anyone has fitted one with a tone board made by other than Standard or with an external controller please consider donating the interfacing information.
