Hi, I have come across a radio that looks a lot like a HRO-5. It has no
nameplate on it but there is a patent sticker on the inside of the rig that
has a list of patent dates for the Australian manufacturer. The latest being
1936. There is a crystal in it with the AWA logo on it. From the
Communications Receivers Book 1942 to 1997 it mentions the 3BZ, AMR-101 and
the AR8 models. I am not sure if all three were HRO look alike's in the

Digital pix available to help ID if necessary.

Thank you,

Bob   AB3L
