Travel portables from Japanese manufacturers
With the transition from valve to semiconductor technology, the Japanese radio industry experienced a huge boom. The small sets were light, compact and shockproof, which made importing them to Europe easy and cheap. In addition to the radios from large Japanese manufacturers, many inexpensive radios from companies that were less well-known in this country also were sold in Europe. Also listed are radios from well-known companies that offered only single radios with shortwave coverage.
