(Belson is French for 'nice sound')
model Transistor six
Small pocket radio type # unknown - made in the 1960s for Belgium market - 4 early transistors made by Fairchild USA, 2x Hitachi 2SB77, 1 extra transistor used as diode, 1 Germanium diode - MW / LW - 9V battery supply.
model LM 812
Pocket radio made in Japan by Orion Electric (JT-802) for Belgium Market - LW/MW - 8 Toshiba Ge transistors, 1 transistor used as diode, no diodes - schematics inside cabinet - 4,5 V supply by 3 AAA cells.
Belson radio made by Orion Electric (JT-802) Japan with the traditional MW/LW, this radio is similar to the LM812, but inside as well as outside this radio has its own character, type # unknown - it has 7 Ge transistors - schematics inside cabinet - it plays very well - 3V supply by 2 AA cells - The used transistors are somewhat noisy compared to the other Belson models, it has a firm hiss in the LF stage - the speaker is very small.
Another typical Belson radio with the traditional MW/LW made in Singapore, this radio is similar to the radio above, but inside as well as outside this radio has its own character and has a more simple electronic design. It has 7 transistors: 4 Silicon 1 Germanium and 2 Sanyo Germanium output transistors - it plays very well on 3V supply by 2 AA cells.
Nice white coloured case, 6 transistor radio.
This is a radio that is nearly the same as the Roxy radio (see Roxy at my site) with some difference: this radio has FM, but no AC powersupply.
12 transistor radio AM/FM. 9 transistors Silicon and 3 transistors Germanium, mix of Hitachi, GE and brandless transistors. Also AC/DC powered with stabilized power supply. Leatherette case. Plays quite well. Probably made in Hong Kong.
