The Pygmy Ultron has a tuning dial that differs from most other European
Radios: it shows both frequencies and specific broadcasters on both the MW and LW bands ("PO" is MW and "GO" is LW on French-made radios). And what makes this model especially unique is how it switches between the two bands: turning the tuning dial pointer to the bottom of the MW band knocks a slide-switch to LW, and turning the tuning dial pointer to the top of the LW band knocks the slide-switch to MW (see photos below).
