I just bought a wildlife materials 1000, its a 1989 model in good shape but it doesn't have an Attenuator switch. .not even a place For the toggle. Did they start putting the
Attenuator on until a later date?

I have the same box, same year, no attenuator. Have had it over 20 years. Probably was less money than the one with it brand new. I always though it was just a bother and added to the list of variables. My buddy had the one with it. If they're within hearing I know the spot on the gain that corresponds with either my yagi or di-pole.
