A BASIC COLLECTION OF JAPANESE WW II RADIOS PART 1
The basic radios that can be found are the Type 94-6, a small one
transceiver (Two tubes in one glass envelope) and the Type 94-5 set
which consists of a small one tube transmitter and a separate three
receiver. These are very small radios and would fit inside a duffle bag
with ease. They are the company and battalion level sets. See Electric
Radio articles by Ken Lakin. They are powered by small hand cranked
generators when transmtting and by batteries when receving.There are a
lot of accessories that go with these. I have available a cost
breakdown on these sets which lists most of the accessories, if anyone
The Type 94-3 A sets were used by the Division and regimental stations
and are rare items, there being three sets that I know of in private
collections. Two in the US and one in England. There are also a Type
94-3 B and a Type 94-3 C set . Very little is known of the 94-3 B set.
The Type 94-3 C sets were used by the horse cavalry units and while rare
are in existance in private collections. Consisting of a Receiver,
transmitter and hand cranked generator. They used plug in coils as did
the Type 94-3A set.
I have seen ads for the receivers in ARC and elsewhere. Transmitters
much rarer.as are the gnerators. The Type 94-3 D set seems to be a
companion receiver for the Type 94-3 A set.
Any other Army or ground forces set is extremly rare and they seldom
show up. Aircraft radios are also rare but they do turn up. With out
case they are worth about $75 to $150 With the case, more. A type
99-5 receiver in the case was found in a New Jersey flea market for
$250.00 a few years ago.
Japanese Army Aircraft radiosthat are most commonly found were
designated as Type 99-1, 99-2. 99-3, 99-4 , and 99-5. Made up of the
receiver, transmitter, dyanamotors and control boxes, they are seldom
found in complete condition. Difficult to work on, hard to find
schematics for them and of limited appeal to HAM radio operators, these
were not brought home in any great numbers. They range in value from one
station that was complete,with control boxes, dynamotors and cabloing
for $65.00 to one set consisting of receiver and transmitter only for
Japanese Naval aircraft radios are also scarce items as most of them
down at sea when the plane crashed. Those that survived crashing at sea
crashed on land. Sometimes these sets were captured when an airfield was
over run by allied forces. These too have limited appeal to HAM radio
operators, were hard to work on , had hard if not imposible to find
schematics and were not brought home in any large numbers. While rare
items, the are not as valuable as some of the army ground rados.
If you like aircraft radios, these are very good examples of enemy

INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non]. Remarks about the Electra in my Nov
Monitoring Times column provoked calls from Scott Becker and
Allan Weiner on Nov 11, from which I learned: It is an ocean-
going tugboat and quite capable of the voyage to the Caribbean,
but will take it easy at 6-8 knots, so the trip to the still
secret island will last about two weeks. It's all finished and
ready to go, the latest delay caused by the need to hire a new
pilot, and one has just been signed up. Something called
Frontline International is now identified as funder of the
project, not Lightwave Mission Broadcasting. Weiner no longer
expects that Yesterday USA Network will be carried. There is a
single 10 kW SW transmitter and a smaller one as backup. Antenna
is an inverted-V without much gain, but the seawater will help.
Two more SW transmitters may be added later, and/or AM and FM.
Weiner was at Kennebunk, Maine, where he spends most of his time
though he does have a SW application pending for Monticello, ME
at the other end of the state. He says his part of the project,
installing the radio equipment, is done, and he has no plans to
be on the ship or broadcast programs himself. Becker said he was
speaking to me from aboard the vessel in East Boston; the project
has plenty of money and is fully funded, ready to leave when the
pilot arrives (Glenn Hauser, REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL BROADCASTING
via WORLD OF RADIO 917)
*In MASSACHUSETTS, the 105.3 spot on the Boston dial has come back to
life after pirate Rebel Music Radio's self-imposed demise. The latest
unlicensed occupant of 105.3 is something called "WLMR," Local Music
It's supposedly operating from the vicinity of Harvard Avenue
and Commonwealth Avenue, and its web page at
http://localmusicdirectory.com/wlmrmain.htm is appealing to building
owners for a rooftop on which to mount the transmitter.

FREE RADIO BERKELEY:
We've all been wondering about the lawsuit against Free Radio Berkeley.
Today there was finally a decision by Judge Claudia Wilken. In Stephen
Dunifer's words, "We kicked their butts!". Judge Wilken turned down the
FCC's request for an injunction, refuted FCC claims that the case was
out of her jurisdiction, and ordered the FCC to answer questions
regarding whether their regulations violate the first amendment. We
salute Judge Wilken for making this brave decision. The FCC will
probably make an appeal, but this means that Free Radio Berkeley will
get to survive at least another year. We'll be getting more information
out as it becomes available, and check out the next AMPB report for an
