Versions of the ICF-5500M exist that have a function of short range FM transmitter/receiver. It can be compared to a CB transceiver. The little plate that says "Captain 55" is not there, but instead there is a push-down switch that switches the radio in FM transmitter mode.

It seems that this was popular in Japan.

I tried to answer to the first version of your post this:

"

My apologies to mr. Salvador Galan-Ocaña.  Because a few minutes after my addition to the Sony model ICF5500M, I discovered that he has entered exactly this model (the model with the FM transmitter) to RM.org.

Bernhard, you can find the model I refered to, here:

http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/sony_icf_5500.html

I have mailed RM.org at once about my mistake. Later this day I will delete my information or (if that is not possible) ask a moderator to do that....

 "

The site would not let me post this. But now I see why: you were editing your post.

P.S. You deleted your first version of your post without a trace - but IMHO it is better not to do that, because that can be confusing to other readers, and myself.

Dear Peter,

since no reaction to my first post arrives, I deleted the post few minutes after recognizing the existence of the Sony ICF-5500 in RMorg. I don't realize that your answer was on the way nearly the same time... You're right, this can be a source of confusing to others, a correction should always be the better way. I apologise this... thanks.

Bernhard

Bernhard,

Yes, that is what happened. A well, things like this can occur. No big problem.

Now about the FM transmitter in this special Japanese Sony ICF5500 model. I would like to see the circuit but that seems not te be available.
