The Central Electronics 200V was unique for its time, it requires no tuning of the final or other controls to use (broadband tuning). It has a built in 2" oscilloscope for monitoring various functions. It had two sets of set and forget controls on the front panel, behind two drop down doors. It has a PTO inside, and a drum dial with fine vernier type tuning. Other features include VOX and PTT.

An optional 160 m kit could also be fitted plus there was the capability of adding a 1 MHz range anywhere in the HF range.
