  • Notes
  • Portable radio with internal battery & speaker. When the radio is inserted into a car cradle it operates from the car 12V supply, external speaker & car aerial.

    These kind of radios existed to avoid a Licence (tax) for a Car Radio, as a portable Radio was covered by the "Wireless Receiver Licence" of the home in the UK. Eventually the Radio Reception Licences were abolished when most people had a TV licence. Still in the UK and Ireland  (2012) a TV outside the home must be covered by the home TV licence and only be operated on battery.
