Since timing is everything to TimeNuts ….. :)

The Motorola TV plant ( known as the Franklin Park North plant, not to be confused with Franklin Park South where they made
…. errr ….. oscillators ) to Panasonic in 1974. The whole transaction came as quite a shock to the people involved. The guy running
the division was very much caught off guard….. He happened to be presenting to a group of us the day after the announcement ….

The Panasonic cell tower timing antenna shows up under a *lot* of different labels. They do indeed sell it under the Panasonic brand
name as well. It is regarded as reasonably bullet proof in terms of blocking cell tower RFI.
