omgs: What does "O.M.G.S." mean ?
Boris Witke


From time to time japanese portable transistor radios show up, branded "O.M.G.S.". Today, it's anyone's guess what O.M.G.S. stands for. Besides some funny interpretations (" Oh My GodnesS") there is no information about it. Does anybody know what "O.M.G.S." stands for ?

I found this in the net:

"Tokyo Transistor Industry Co Ltd manufactured radios under many brand names and successfully marketed them through department and drug stores. They produced radios bearing names such as Universal, Omegas, Goldtone, O.M.G.S, Krysler, Candle & probably others."

But there was no hint what "O.M.G.S" really stands for ...

Hello Mr. Consales,

Thank You very much for Your investigation. Now we know that Tokyo Transistor Industry is the manufacturer, and Candle, OMGS, Universal and others are the Brands oft this company. I already had assumed this fact, as the bottom side of the PCB of my 8- Transistor OMGS is labelled with " TOKYO TRANSISTOR INDUSTRY CO, LTD ". You can see this in one of the pics linked to the model.

Anyway, the question of the meaning of " O.M.G.S. " is still open.

Stop: As this is not related to one model only, please contact a moderator to move this thread to OMGS.

There are much more complications which shall be evaluated.

Kind Regards,


OMGS, O.M.G.S.; New York
