Rumors leaked by unnamed sources close to highly classified R&D 
suggest that very early Echoplex prototypes had the following functions
listed on the front panel controls:


The whereabouts of these prototypes is unknown. No information is available
on what purpose these functions may have served or why they are not
available in commercial units. Experts with top-secret credentials
speculated off the record on condition of anonymity that this may have been
part of a secret extra-governmental military weapons project, and that 
functions may still be in use by clandestine UN special forces units. It 
even been suggested that these functions may still be present in
commercially available Echoplex units today, buried behind secret 
combinations. However, another unnamed source claimed to have once seen a
portion of a top-secret document suggesting otherwise, that these function
labels may have been part of a top-secret researcher's nostalgic fondness
for early 80's video games. No rumors could be confirmed, and all agencies
queried denied all knowledge of any such activity.
