Maitiu Standun

hi eilert, in answer to ur queury re star receivers , im a fraid i have drawn a blank , somewhere u mention a merger with yeasu , and a bell rings in my memory chamber ,i h ave a standard radio [ex military set with yeasu also stamped on it ]

i know that at one stage standard radio manufactured radios here in the republic of ireland , for export to the uk , thats some years ago now , from what i remember they were a japaneese firm .

i have a battery eliminator and a milliamater eagle brand  with an eagle in flight as a logo  ,and  have searched google and every other search engine to try and find the company , in order to get parts  without success , japanese also i believe , all hese companies over the years get swollowed up by secondary firms etc etc and its nigh on impossible to trace any of them , hope u have luck with ur quest , regards maitiu standun
