Yes, it did have CW.

It was basically a Swan 260, or 270, that only covered 10 meters and 11 
meter "receive only.

You had to remove a shorting strap from the band switch to make it 
transmit on 11 meters.

Also, to get it up into the "free band area above the CB band, you had 
to screwdriver the 10 meter section.

They had the typical Swan "AM" modulation that used only one sideband.

Most of the CBer's that I knew who blew them up did so when trying to 
get them to work on AM.
