Hi Jepp - Yeah, that was me talking about those air dropped transistor
radios. They were dropped by B-52's out of Guam 1972-73 (crs) over
North Vietnam, not Laos, in cannisters that opened and the little radios
were in a syrefoam box with a mini parachute dispersed over a wide area.
Also came with two AA batteries and an instruction booklet in Vietnamese.
How effective they were is unknown. See attach, if it gets thru TLCB filters.
Best regards, Ken
