AN/UGC-136 Teletypewriter. The AN/UGC-136 teletypewriter is a militarized, low-level, automatic send and receive teleprinter. It has storage, editing, and self-test capabilities. The AN/UGC-136 is controlled by a microprocessor with an internal solid-state memory and has full message composition and editing capabilities. It prints data nominally at 120 characters per second (1200 bps), can transmit or receive at data rates of 50 to 2400 bps, and can operate in switch-selectable Baudot or ASCII codes. The message storage module has a capacity of 12,288 characters. The AN/UGC-136CX is installed onboard submarines and the AN/UGC-136BX is installed on surface platforms. The primary difference between the AN/UGC-136CX and the AN/UGC-136BX is the AN/UGC-136BX has an LED display incorporated on the front panel to allow viewing of text for editing purposes when typed. The keyboard printer weighs approximately 59 pounds, is 8.5 inches high, 15.75 inches wide, and 17.4 inches deep. The power requirements are 115 V ac, 60 Hz, and 100 watts.

The AN/UGC-136CX is a ruggedized send-and-receive teleprinter, controlled by a microprocessor with an internal solid state memory, and full-message composition and editing capabilities; it prints data at a nominal 120 characters per second (1200 bps). It can transmit or receive at data rates from 50 to 9600 bps to or from the message storage memory, and can operate in switch-selectable Baudot or ASCII codes. The storage capacity of 64 messages or 256K random access memory (RAM), permits the short-term storage of received messages while the operator simultaneously composes and stores outgoing messages for transmission. Multiple communication ports also provide a bulk-storage device compatibility.
