9-7: Receivers and Transceivers
Most two-way radio communication equipment is packaged so that both transmitter and receiver are in a unit known as a transceiver.
Transceivers range from large, high-power desktop units to small, pocket-sized, handheld units.
Transceivers have a common housing and power supply.
Transceivers can share circuits, thereby achieve cost savings, and in some cases are smaller in size.
