    Default 1960's Radio Identification Help Needed

    Hello,

    Wondering if anyone can identify the brand and model of the portable transmitter shown in the pictures from this link to a Gilligan's Island episode from the mid 1960's. There is a good picture of it about half way down in the picture at this link.

    I'm not convinced it is a transceiver, given the period. Probably an empty box for show...

    I would hazard a guess that it is real, by the amount of detail on it and for shows like that, it would be easier and cheaper to borrow a real radio, rather than knock one up for the show - For example, the broadcast radio they use is a Packard Bell AR-851

    I guess you could ask on the Wiki page for the episode where it was used: http://gilligan.wikia.com/wiki/Take_A_Dare
