Well, the TED has 16-bit frequency divider registers, which is a luxury
compared to the 7-bit registers of the VIC-20.  You know, it is very
hard to use higher end of the frequency scale on the VIC-20, because
the frequency values will be so far apart.  Think: f=1/x with x=2, 3, 4, ...
The step is much smaller with large values of x (small frequencies).
