Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Ben-Zion, who writes:

I love your website and wanted to contribute a radio in cinema sighting from the 1980 South African film The Gods Must Be Crazy.

I look forward to your readers feedback regarding this SONY unit.

Kind Regards.


Thanks for the tip! Oh I do love that particular Sony model! Can anyone ID it? 

Spread the radio love

    As an aside, there is one episode of The Munsters where Herman is a ham op and uses some Hollywood- concocted version of a ham radio. Hilarious!

      I think QST had a picture at the time. I’m thinking something like an S-38 with a microohone attached, but maybe that was some other show.

      Shows and movies often use whatever is on hand, or looks good.
