Can you identify this radio?

SWLing Post reader, Kim, wondered if anyone could identify the make and model of the radio (pictured right) which had been modified to contain a bomb. Terrorists used these devices recently in Thailand.  ABC News featured an article and video about the attacks, but I’ve seen little about the make/model of radio that had been used.

Update: See JW’s comment below–this is an EPE model FP-103U.

    Thanks, Vimal! It certainly does look like the Baygen. I have one of those, but somehow I didn’t make the connection.

    Actually the radio is an EPE, marketed in Asia. It is a model FP-103U. You can order the exact model here if you are so inclined: http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/202761/210684601-436045470/110601Z-New-arrival-portable-AM-FM-SW-radio-receiver-SD-USB-MP3-player-torch-flashlight-rechargeable.html
