Handie-Talkie, BC-611-E


Genuine WWII US Army BC-611-E radio receiver and transmitter, a.k.a. 'Handie-Talkie'. Complete with its plate, antenna and carrying strap, the present handie-talkie retains most of its original paint.

Designed as a single-handed radio, the BC-611 was developed for the infantry, offering a short-range voice communication capability (1.2 mile) to small units: company, squad, etc. Working with preset channels, it was powered by BA-37 and BA-38 dry batteries. Pulling out the telescopic antenna would turn the radio on.

Very good overall condition.
