ComPol manufactures three different SAP receivers for channels 2 through 69. Each receiver has its own application and advantages. All receivers are pretuned to a specific television or cable channel. They do not utilize intercarrier sound demodulation, but rather, they treat the sound transmission independently, thus achieving much greater sensitivity than is possible with conventional television receivers.
