Mark spots shortwave radios in the series “Helix”

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mark Hirst, who writes:

I spotted a Sony ICF-SW7600GR in episode 5 of the Netflix bio-thriller ‘Helix‘:

On a roll, I spotted another shortwave radio [in a different scene].

You’ve got sharp eyes, Mark! Thank you for sharing.

Can anyone identify the solid-state receiver in the second screen shot?

I know I’ve seen this model before, but I can’t recall the make or manufacturer.

Spread the radio love

    The radio in the second screenshot looks a lot like a Binatone Worldstar from the mid to late 1970s. I actually own one – purchased off eBay for the grand sum of 99 pence! Clint
