I [note you] have published movies scenes with radios and I remember one of my favorite movies about nature, science, silence, wolves and Inuit culture called “Never Cry Wolf” I’m sharing with you and all readers of SWLing Post blog a radio (I don’t know what brand is, I think is military radio) appear in Never Cry Wolf movie.

I love this scene because the heterodyne sound is a particular sound that drives us crazy to everyone who loves radio!! jaja 😛

The video was extracted from the original Beta format movie, sorry for
the quality.

Thank you for sharing, Emilio!

That heterodyne sound leads me to believe they obtained it using a regenerative receiver. I’ve heard that squeal so many times tuning regen receivers!

I’ll add this post to our ever growing archive of radios in film!

Hi Thomas,

I’m writing because found this (interesting) analysis about radio
components and the impact on radio receiver quality:

I think may be are interesting topic for readers of the SWLing Post.

This is interesting, Emilio.  Thank you for sharing. Although the reason the author put together this post was to refute IBOC’s claims about testing AM receivers, it is also a fascinating look into cheap AM radio/receiver design.  Thank you for sharing!
