  • Notes
  • U.S. Navy personal receiver to receive orders in combat zones. RBZ is composed by two small fiber enclosures fitted into a two-pouch canvas holder. One unit contained the radio itself, the second one hosting the dry batteries, connected by a 4-wire cord. The headset was weared with a canvas skullcap under the helmet, which was used as antenna.
    The permeability tuned receiver has only switch/volume control and tuning knob. Differs from standard RBZ for 5 - 13 MHz tuning range, mostly used in Europe to cover the BBC broadcast.
    The radio could also be AC operated using a special RBZ Power Pack Model 2.
    Manufactured by Emerson Radio & Phonograph Corp.
