Photo Brian Wilson

Below you find a part of the radio collection Brian Wilson - including other related items.

Germanium Transistor radios preferably with Australian station call signs rather than frequency. I.E. limited range to keep the costs down and the "Domestic Financial Controller" at least somewhat happy. These radios are a technical "Dead End" in that there is no radio manufacture in Australia now and no-one is using Germanium Transistors in radio any more.
