I have long had an interest in the TBY radios and its history with the USMC and Navajo Code Talkers. Yesterday I picked this radio set up from one of the technical advisers (according to him) from the movies. I should have got his name but know how to get it.
This set was up and running about 10 years ago. It as the CW key, headset/mic, spare tubes, AC power supply and cord, battery pack, manuals, shipping case, extra tubes, and antenna. I have another TBY and hope to get both sets working in the near future.
The only parts I am missing are the canvas cover, antenna tip section, and volume knob. I'm looking for one on these to display. Let me know if anyone has any leads.
I plan on using this set in my local Vets and Memorial day displays.
Thanks for looking.
